    I have 4 barred rocks - they just started to lay just over a month ago - on average 4 eggs a day lately.

    Yesterday they each gave me a little present

    Today there were 5 eggs in there - 3 in the next - 2 outside the nest - 1 was actually a soft shelled egg Is that unusual to get 5 eggs in 1 day from 4 girls

    They are still young so it is expected. The soft shelled egg was from the girl that laid 2 that day and not from a lack of anything. It won't happen often but does happen.
