What causes this???
It's doesn't have a shell. Everybody gets one now and then. The clinical cause I can't explain, but it's normal. with 17 hens I get 2 or 3 a year, that I find. I believe they may lay more than that, but the egg breaks and the hens eat it, leaving little evidence.
My hens have been laying since July 29, I have two bantams and five reds. I have one Rhode Island Red that I think is a hen but does everything the roosters do except crow.. Today i got my five brown eggs and one bantam egg. That is to big for a bantam. Could this be that other hens first egg?
It could be a first timer. My birds are Easter birds and in a span of a few weeks we found 4 or 5 of them.
Just give them some oyster shell and plenty of protein and they should be fine.
Ok thank y'all for the info..
it wont happen often. chicken may be young. just make sure they get a good diet with healthy food and they will be fine.
