Help - weird egg!

Recommended Posts

The ridges usually occur while the egg is still inside the hen and before the shell has been laid down. It can be due to stress or some trauma, older or immature hens may be more prone to lay wrinkly eggs. One of my gingers laid very wrinkly eggs last year. They've actually improved since she moulted!
