If you’re a backyard chicken owner, you will probably find a weird egg or to in your coop eventually.


Every day (yes, literally every day), I get an email from a fan who asks me why they got a weird-looking egg in their coop. 


So, I decided to do a podcast about WHY chickens lay weird eggs and what you can do about it.

You’ll learn:
