Well that was fun - NOT! We just had a huge storm go through, torrential rain and yep, Cilla did not take the bubbies into the dry coop but decided to shelter under some shade-cloth (not waterproof). I had to don the rain coat and crawl into a muddy run picking up soggy babies and mumma and putting them into the coop. Thunder, lightening, torrential rain and useless rain coat; I reckon I would have been a very funny sight! Then I'm still out there drying them as well as I could with a chamois and they are now tucked up in their dry coop on dry straw. They seem to be drying out. Poor little munchkins were shivering a little before I ran the chamois over them but not so much now. I think they are going to be OK; I, on the other hand, look like a half drowned rat and will probably catch a chill. Bourbon time I reckon!
Question time again friends. One of my commercial layer looked like it was gonna take a dump but turned out laying a what looked like an unformed egg. I'm new to all this, she has laid 4 days in a row nice looking eggs and didn't lay yesterday them today whilst I was down with them outta the pen that happened. So is that normal or should I worry?
Quite normal to see various shaped and textured eggs when they first come into lay. Anything from a " fart " egg to a rubber, soft shelled egg.
I thought I had read that it was normal for a young chook just starting to lay just wanted to check with the experts thanks so much for the quick reply
Hardly an expert, just a chook lover!
My Chicken raising experience is a massive 10 days so any help given by anyone makes them and expert in my opinion GREAT BUNCH OF MEMBERS ON THIS FORUM

Hopefully they are all snuggled up and dry now :/)
