So some of the eggs I get are wrinkled on the pointy end. Does that mean anything? I am
They are prematurely old. Does the hen smoke?
Sorry. I'm tired and goofy.... the eggs are just fine, that happens sometimes in the production.
Happens to mine too perfectly normal i think it might be when the egg comes out and has a sticky shell the straw or hay leaves a mark like silly puddy. it might not but the eggs are still normal.
It might mean they need more calcium. My hens laid a few like that so we went to the feed store and a very helpful young man told us to try adding oyster shell to their feed or just getting a new feed with some already mixed in. Within a week no more wrinkled eggs and the shells are thicker and my hens look healthier now too. Good luck with the eggs!
Here's a link to my favorite egg quality page. It addresses the problem you are having. It's not anything to worry about, just aesthetically displeasing. It happens in my older hens fairly often these days.
