Hello all! I have three Jersey Giants who are still young but should start laying very soon. I have had them for about two months. Two weeks ago I purchased three laying hens; one Orphington and two Americauna's, all between 1 and 1 1/2 years old. The little americana's never missed a beat and have been giving me an egg every other day since I got them. Yesterday I found a half formed, soft shelled brown egg in the nest. Who could this be from? I am wondering if this new brown eggs is from the old Orphington or one of the new Giant's. I understand that when relocating laying hens they may stop laying....I guess my question is; when they start laying again are their eggs normal, fully formed eggs OR do they go throught the "new egg" stage again with soft weirdo eggs? Thanks!
