    We are hatching chicken eggs in our classroom. The shells seem to be wrinkled on a few of the eggs. What does that mean?

    I never noticed they were wrinkled until a few days ago.

    They look like they were laid that way.

    Okay great so there is nothing to worry about? I don't have anything gaging my humidity so I just add water daily.

    There's nothing to worry about. Sometimes a hen just lays a wrinkled egg
