Egg Shell Problems


Sometimes chickens can have problems with the shells of their eggs.  They might have problems if they don't eat the right food or it's too hot, or it's too cold, or they are scared.  When they are pullets they sometimes lay fart eggs because they aren't very old. And for some chickens it might be hard to push out their egg and then they get their blood on it.
