    one of my chickens laid a partly developed chick - no shell or membrane - does anyone have insight and do you think she will be normal now?

    Hi smlfarmer, welcome to BYC!

    When my gals first started laying we would get a few of those. We also got a few rubber (soft shelled) eggs. Are your chickens young and just starting laying?

    I think it was one of my 2 year olds - I do have two new ones from this year one is laying and the other hasn't started yet or is not laying in the coop

    my 2 year olds have stopped laying all together except for one that lays very thin shelled eggs and I have 10 more that are little and wont lay till dec not sure how many hens to roos as they were straight runs

    It probably just one of those 'weird eggs', that you sometimes get. It's nothing to worry about, unless your hen keeps laying them.

    Is your chicken laying normally now?
