    Hi all, I have a amberlink hen who is approx 1 year old. When we got her we were told she would lay brown eggs. After about a weeks or two she indeed started to lay lovely big brown eggs every day and was very prone to double yolks! Yum! And then out of no where she started to lay cream eggs? Then the cream eggs become an odd shape and texture (almost grainy) or like grit not smooth? Them recently she laid a huge weird shape cream egg and hasn't laid for about 2 weeks. She seems fine in herself and is still eating and drinking (layers mash and mixed corn as a treat) my other hens are thriving and are laying daily but I'm worried about her? I also think she may be blind in one eye as its a little hazel and she closes it quite a lot but its definately not infected - unsure if that's related? Any advise is greatly appreciated.

    Could she be molting?

    No she's definitely not moulting... There are not many loose feathers in the coops and no bald or scraggy spots like usual?
