Eggs are great and cheap sources of Omega 3’s and protein – but did you know that are up 12 types of them? Firstly soft-shelled eggs usually produced by very old or very young chickens. When chickens become extremely stressed or lacks either calcium or vitamin D, you’ll get soft-shelled eggs instead of the usual hard-shelled ones.
Soft shelled eggs with tails attached to them usually occur when the egg gets stuck within the hen, creating an unusual shape!
These are mended eggs – when the egg breaks before the chicken lays it, the egg calcifies, leaving a visible crack on its outer shell.
Misshapened eggs are similar to eggs with tails – but they simply have solidified much faster.
