Hey all, new in the chicken raising bit. My wife and I have had 4 hens (unknown the type) now for about a month. We have one black and white hen (Elsa), one dark red hen (Annie), and two light brown hens (Millie and Mo). They are all about 1.5 yrs old. We get 3 sometimes four eggs per day. As I mentioned, we have no experience raising them and look forward to having them as pets and growing those eggs! I have a lot of questions such as, Why did my Annie ay an egg outside her nest and why was it soft-shelled? Will going two days without oyster shells cause that and the stress of two days poor weather (rain storms) cause that? What's the best feed to give them? Will bringing a new chicken (or more) to the coop cause grief with the established hens? There are more questions but before I ask in new threads I will do my searching. That being said, If you have links to any of these topics or know yourself I look forward to your help and thank you in advance.
