    Two days in a row, all perfectly normal egg, one very veiny looking zombie egg. Still hard, and the egg inside is perfectly fine. My chickens eat layers pellets and whatever else they dig up in their run. Thoughts?

    I see a lot of creepy eggs on this site. Not sure about it being a problem.

    WEIRD EGG. The chicken has many different complicated parts to them. This egg came from a chicken who still has to develop or has some international complications.

    Hope this helped!

    How old are your birds?
    If something like this happens once....or once in a great while......it's just a glitch and nothing to worry about.
    If it happens all the time, then it needs to be investigated to find out which bird is laying them......tho there is probably nothing to be done about it.
