    Egg with no shell, no membrane

    One of mine just did that also. Yellow mess in the nest box. They were out roaming yesterday but eat Layer pellets (purina) and I also give them access to crushed eggshells. they are young and only laying less than a month. This may be a new layer or just ate too much “junk” grazing...

    When did your earliest hen lay?

    My girl, Maranga, started at about 22 weeks about ONE week after the temperature went below 100F. she gives me an egg a day and struts her stuff as if she knows. Forget what breed she is. red & some white. Waiting for the rest of the flock to get the hint that hot summer is over!

    Official BYC Poll: How Often Do You Clean Your Coop?

    I clean (deep) once a month or sooner if I smell or see. Everything out, new stuff in. Plastic liners in the coop house roll up with bedding in it like a burrito. Into the cart out to where I want to dump it. Clean plastic goes in, new bedding. Dirty plastic lining goes under the hose...
