    I'm glad I'm back! Computer was down!
    I have a question. This morning I let the girls out and I found a soft shelled egg . It was still intact not broken. One of the girls must have dropped it while roosting maybe prematurely. I come home from work and find 7 eggs in the nest boxes. I don't get it [​IMG]. Yesterday, only 6 girls laid 6 eggs. What's going on?

    I not sure how old your chicken are so, I will assume they are just starting to lay!

    It is fairly normal when they start to lay to have a soft shell.

    If they have been laying then they need more calcium in their diet.
