Ok I am sure someone has had this issue, but I am struggling to search it properly. So I am sorry if this is a question asked often. I have 5 hens, all about 20-22 ish weeks old. 2 Buff Orpingtons that are not really showing many egg laying signs. No worries, they are known to be later layers. 2 Barred Rocks, one who is laying lovely eggs regularly and has for about a week and a half. The other has all the lovely readiness signs. Red, large wattles and combs, submissive squat, more vocal, etc. And it SEEMED that she had laid a few "starter eggs." You know, the thinner, rubbery shelled eggs that new layers often start with. About 2 (a few days between each. Maybe 3 or so days.) They were brownish. I know they were not from the other barred rock, because she laid on time both days in her typical spot at her typical time and I saw her do it. And then we have an Amerecauna, and she has a few signs of being ready and we found a greenish "starter" egg about 5 days ago, but since nothing. Is this normal? Can they start with some early, thin-shelled eggs and then stop? They were all in the nest boxes. But I keep scouring the yard in all their usual haunts and all of the out-of-the-way areas too, but see no signs of further eggs. What could be happening? Has this happened to others?
