Hello, I have a 21 week old Midnight Majesty Maran along with 12 other assorted chickens. Theyve been laying for a few weeks now. Recently, I have watched her have 3 soft eggs. When I say she has them, she just drops them out. Whatever shes doing, they just drop out. She doesnt squak and make the noises the other chickens do when they lay. She has had them from the porch banister, and from the ground. I saw her do it again about 15 minutes ago under our back porch. It's just like shes pooping them out and doesnt even notice it. She goes on about her day. When she has them, there is also a "yolky" looking liquid that comes from her bum. I have attached pictures. They free range through the day but their coop stays open from the time I let them out around 6:30 am to the time they put themselves away in the evening around 5:30 and their coop has a feeder in it with layer pellets in it that they have access to 24 hours a day. What is causing this? What do I do to fix it?
