Re: Consistent pale, thin shelled eggs

This has happened a few times now and she always eventually lays and when she does it's a peculiar egg - either ridged or has the calcium bands on it. As expected, last time it was one similar to the pic of the 2 eggs I posted. It lasts for a few days and then she is back to normal again. On the pic...

Re: Consistent pale, thin shelled eggs

Thanks Margaid, that's a great piece of info to have. Yes they are the same aren't they, that's helpful. She actually went back to laying normal eggs for a couple of weeks when I started giving her extra oyster shell and cod liver oil however, the reason I came back on here today is because she hasn...

Her eggs are usually dark brown (like the smaller circle in the photo) only they have started appearing either fully white or as per the picture with strange circular patterns on, very chalky and rough like sandpaper. She is still laying everyday, this has been going on for approx 2 weeks. I read th...

Re: Consistent pale, thin shelled eggs

The eggs themselves look fine, it is just the shell that's very strange. They have grit separately next to their feeder. Yes that's what I'm worried about, I read about egg drop and if it's that you can't eat the eggs but I don't know how to tell!

Thanks,

Zoe

Consistent pale, thin shelled eggs

Hi again, I wrote on here a couple of weeks ago about our Gingernut Ranger who laid a pale, thin shelled egg followed by a shell less egg. We deduced that she must have seen the fox in the night or something but this problem didn't go away; now she regularly lays pale, thin shelled eggs that are oft...

Pale shelled egg followed by egg with no shell?

Hi again everyone, I noticed our Gingernut Ranger was a bit off this morning so I have been watching her closely - first unusual event was that she laid an egg in the pen and it was very pale, almost white (her eggs are usually brown and she always lays in the coop). She then took herself into the c...

Re: New hens, funny poo - no other signs of illness

Good news is both hens are laying fine now, we haven't had any more problems phew :-) the second hen started nearly 2 and a half weeks later so maybe it was just a little too soon. Bad news is I had my first encounter with the dreaded F word this evening. The hens were safe in their pen and I heard ...
