    So I've had several of these wrinkled eggs. Sometimes they have a thin spot. Oyster shell is offered at all times. Thinking this was a calcium issue. Now I got this egg...

    It has the banded looking wrinkles and an extra lump of shell on top! Am I being overly paranoid? I have a girl with eyp about to go and another with what I think is a lash egg stuck! When it rains it pours problems around here.
    All girls are about 3. EYP hen is an RIR and the other two are BL.
    Everyone except RIR with eyp is acting, eating, pooping normal.
    Is this just a rash of age related problems?

    The wrinkles are pretty small, so I wouldn't say it's anything to worry about. In some cases, a wrinkled egg could be a sign that the chicken had bronchitis, but in this case it probably is just related to her age. Good luck!

    Yes I had read about bronchitis possibly being a cause but no symptoms of that thank goodness! And I've gotten these eggs for months so I would definitely think symptoms would have shown.

    Thank You!
