Today’s Really Weird Egg

Giant Weird EggWe’re still finding shell-less and soft-shelled (rubber) eggs, eggs smashed from dropping onto the poop board (like they just fell out of the roosting hens) and, today, a very strange-looking egg.

Check out the photo of the egg – it’s larger than average (“normal” egg shown for comparison), and wrinkly. There are many possible reasons for a hen to lay an egg that looks like this, but at this point, it just seems like a pullet’s reproductive system is working out the kinks. The size of the egg suggests it may be a double-yolker – we’ll know soon enough. With the pullets now reaching egg-laying age, there will definitely be more egg oddities!
