Hi All! Thanks so much for the feed back about my 'bad egg'-- the crazy looking one.
I've done some research myself and am thinking like everyone else it's a calcium deficiency. I had been pretty diligent to give them crushed eggshells before, but I guess dealing with the NUGGETS and having them ALL free ranging IN THE SAME AREAS- I forgot about doing this.
Too much calcium for young chickens can also create problems with their kidneys and do damage I was trying to avoid. So now I'm back to putting it in the chicken coop only.
I believe I've narrowed it down to who may be the culprit of the 'thin shelled' eggs. It's Gracie; the other half to my pair- George and Gracie. She is the smallest of my Barred Rock chickens, although I got her at the same time and she HAS GIVEN EGGS BEFORE with no problems. She's been laying in the box a lot. At times her comb seems a little pale too. I am not so sure that the missing feathers is molt as much as it's just George being aggressive.
