http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc3/joanchickens/Soft-shelleddoubleegg.jpg Good day all, I had an abnormal egg yesterday. I have 10 hens that are laying (out of 25) and up until now they have all had extra hard shells on all the eggs. So yesterday after I let them out to free range I heard a huge squawk and came over to that area to find this on the ground. This is also the first time an egg has been laid out of a nest. I guess if a hen had a double egg with hard shells the squawk would have been much louder. I don't know which hen laid this as it was out of sight and there were several candidates in the area (support group?). Anyhow, they have had oyster shell free choice. Is it possible that the energy that would usually produce a shell went into producing the 2nd egg? This is a first for me, but I'm fairly new to chickens. Has anybody else experienced somthing similar? Thanks for any comments.
