    1st my buff orphington gave me 2 normal eggs and now we only get soft shell eggs from her at night its been over a month so I am sure this is perment thing. the ones that stay intact I get and take out of the soft shell put in bowl with lid and put in fridge. so my ? how long are those good for in the fridge with out the shell. can I keep them for like say a week?

    *Calcum intake and food has been addressed she has a messed up egg shell maker*

    What are they eating? Laying an egg takes calcium. Try giving the BO some extra calcium either oyster shell or egg shell. No idea how long a egg out of its shell will last in the refrigerator. I know you can freeze them.

    Starting to lay again after being broody is an individual thing. Some times two weeks sometimes a month or more.
