    My girls just started laying about a week ago, I boiled some of the fresh eggs and the shell stuck, they just don't peel.
    I even boiled them with some store bought eggs and the store bought eggs peeled just fine.
    Is their a problem with my eggs?

    Your eggs are just fine, they are fresh. You said they started laying a week ago? The store eggs are older, older eggs peel better. Not sure if there is an exact timeframe, but I let mine set 2 weeks before boiling. I have an egg carton just for my boiling eggs and everyone knows not to eat them.
