Ant suggestions would be appreciated!
It appears to be excessive calcium or bloom. Some hens routinely produce eggs like this and others do so occasionally. I think it is just a minor glitch in the egg laying process, but watch for any changes in behavior.
edited to say: Welcome to BYC.
Agreed, and it is also still safe to eat
I agree. It's not uncommon to get eggs like this occasionally, especially from new layers.
Extra bloom, nothing to worry about. The bloom keeps bacteria out of the egg.
Thank you all, I really appreciate it. I do give my hens bread in the winter, wonder if too much but only one hen lays like this.
Does it feel kind of course powdery? One of my RIR hens have been laying such egg since the very beginning.
