My littlest button, a gold pearl tuxedo called Buzz, was the second of my five hens to start laying at just six weeks, and so far she's been pretty troublesome. Last week i thought she might have been egg bound, only to have the problem seem to vanish overnight with no egg. A day or so later i found an empty egg membrane with no shell in her cage. She didn't lay for a few days and then laid two normal eggs two days in a row, though one was striped with blue/green striations like maybe there were some problems in the egg works. Now she's laid three soft shells in a row and i'm at my wit's end. She's got a whole dish of oyster shell and i put extra oyster shell in the sand bath just so she'd have constant access to it. I have been giving them live feeder cockroaches, which are supposedly high in calcium and 30% protein, as well as weekly mealworms, and i've been giving her hand-feeding baby bird formula in a dish to supplement her diet of organic pellets mixed 60/40 with quail seed and another dish of freeze-dried bugs mixed with commercial egg food plus daily kale or spring mix greens. She's living with three other females in a 15" x 32" pen and they're all extremely close. They snuggle and preen together with no fights, but they have multiple hides where they can get away from each other. Buzz has been laying her soft eggs in a two-story fort (five inches high) made from cardboard and then pushing them out of the window to break them so that her sisters can eat the insides. They're indoors so the temperature is pretty constant and she gets 14-16 hours of indirect light per day. What else can i do to either get her to lay normal eggs or stop laying? None of my other single ladies are laying, and my one paired-off female who lives with her mate gets the same light and the same diet and lays a perfect beautiful egg every day and then flock calls to let me know to come get it. Dang it, Little Buzz! Why are you making trouble?
