    Hello all. I have a rather large flock but young flock. Some of my girls recently started laying, this morning in the hen house I found two eggs side by side with very soft shells and but the yolks appeared to be healthy looking. Should I be concerned or could this just be because the pullets are somewhat young. Hatch date was February 13. Concerned
