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.
Chickens lay odd looking eggs for a variety of reasons, so in this episode we look at the reasons your hens can lay the occasional funky egg, and we touch on the 5 most common bizarre-looking eggs I get asked about.
You’ll get tested and proven strategies to help your flock when they start laying weird eggs!
- The top 5 eggs I get asked about
- The 1 underlying factor that contributes to most funky eggs
- Why you need to pay special attention to diet
- Why I don’t usually worry when my flock gives me a weird egg

I’d like to hear from you!
