    my last half dozen of brown eggs have been very wrinkled and all around odd shaped what is the cause of this? will these eggs incubate?

    Quote:Yeah, I don't see anything wrong with eating them. However, I think for incubation there may be a problem with how much moisture is released from a deformed shell.
