    She jumps forward, and was acting real strange, until finally she dropped an egg. I picked her up the day before, and yellow yoke ran down my leg. Does this mean I squeezed one out before it was ready?? The egg came out without a shell. Any ideas about whats going on here? Shes about 5 months old

    Sometimes it takes them a few eggs to get it right. the first are usually soft shell or small or deformed.
