Odd chicken egg
I got the craziest egg today. It is perfectly round, only the size of a yolk and the shell is very thin. Is there a reason a hen will lay an egg prematurely? Is this something to worry about? And should I pitch it or use it?
This is just one of those things — some blip in the hen’s reproduction cycle. It’s nothing to worry about and you can certainly use the egg. I got a rippled, lopsided egg the other day that made us all laugh. I think the hen hiccupped when forming it! — Jackie
