So, this morning she had a nice large egg in there and about an hour ago I was passing by and noticed 2 more eggs (laid them back to back) but the soft shell kind and on the smaller size!

So, why and how did she lay these 2 soft shelled eggs, one after the other and at night and after laying a perfectly normal large sized egg this morning?

she's been laying them off and on, soft shelled. Ive eaten them all, for the first month they were all double yolks, last several have been single yolks.
I would make sure to have oyster shell available free choice.

For just her I would try giving 1/2 tablet Caltrate for 3 days to see if that gives her a boost.

Double yolks while nice is not always a good thing. Hopefully it's a glitch she's working out and she will soon get it all straightened out.

How old is this bird, in weeks or months?
How long has she been laying?
What breed is she?
What all and how exactly are you feeding?
