    I've been getting eggs for several months now but never one like this. It must have been a first for someone! lol those are actual wrinkles in the top!

    Is that egg from a hybrid hen? I had a Red-Sex-Link that laid eggs with that funny wrinkle on it. I think I have read why, but for the life of me I can't remember. She laid an egg every day except the one week she took off for molting. Every one was a super jumbo, most with double yolks and always with the wrinkled top.

    my chookie that lays the egg is a Isa Brown X Leg Horn, she only does it every so often, I thought is was an over eating of grit.?? but would be good to know!
    And I have noticed my newer chickens that have just started laying which are RI red X Australorp have laid a couple like that also...
