Elongated egg

One of my chucks is laying elongated eggs - only 2 so far - but I wondered it if it was an indication of a problem with her.

Hi Anne
I have a few chickens that lay longer eggs than others, there is nothing to worry about and is normal, think it makes a nice change to have different shaped and coloured eggs in an egg box.

Likewise one of mine always lays elongated eggs,the first time she did it I was trying to work out which was the pointed end for storing it....... :?
