I appear to have 1 bird that's laying a shell-less egg.
Only the outter membrane seems to be holding it together.
Unfortunately I have neither the time nor the energy to sit all day and find out who the culprit is.
I'm wonder if I could grab a random bird and re-insert the egg to get it to finish the job?

Thanks!

:lau Haha great idea!! Shelless eggs are usually from pullets. Have you got any new layers in your flock? If not it could be down to lack of calcium in their diet. Try feeding oyster shell free choice :thumbsup

The worst part of the whole thing is that one of those chickens made a fool of me. My daughter came in carrying an egg, saying look dad, this egg is soft.
I told her to just wait a minute and it would get hard.
Imma get that bird!:D
