    Our best layer so far, Clara, seemed to have layed 3 soft eggs today. I found one under the roost, then on the patio, then we saw her lay in the run. We aren't 100% sure she layed the first two. They are still on grower/finisher, I guess the fact that they haven't eaten layer feed could be the problem?

    Apparently broken eggs are normal. Your chicken may need calcium. I've read blowing out an egg and putting mustard or something not so tasty in it will stop them but I would look up other ways.
