I've been keeping my 2 young pullets (about 2 months) in a separate cage inside the run until after the older hens have each laid for the day, before giving them the run to themselves while the hens get the yard. About 5 days ago I started letting the 2 young pullets free in the yard since they are getting too big for the cage. It has been 5 days with no eggs. One of my hens has laid two soft eggs with very thin shells that cracked, but other than that, nothing. My older 3 hens are only 1 year old by the way. Is this normal? Are they stressed? And how long until my girls start laying again?
