I have found 2 day in a row now my hen laying oval shaped eggs. What is wrong?
Uhhh... chickens are suppose to lay oval eggs......
Sorry if I seem rude. The question just kinda seemed... awkward to me, but I guess there is always more than meets the eye.
One of my hens lays long oval eggs and the other lays shorter rounder ones - every hen lays differently!
Is she a hen or a pullet? I have a pullet that lays a torpedo every so often and it is a double-yoker every time. Pullets that have just started laying can lay some funky eggs until they get things worked out.
Umm...Cause square ones would hurt their butts?
Kidding, I've seen what you are talking about...the eggs where it's hard to tell the "small pointy end" from the "big end"...I have no clue!
They're called pullet bullets and they're perfectly okay.
I also have a mature hen who has suddenly started laying long oval eggs... I'm wondering why. So far the answers here are not relevant.
I was told when they do this they need vitamins A, D, & E
