    Dont know if thise needed to be here or the duck section but anyway

    I have a welsh harlequin who I think is between 2-3 years old.

    She was laying good for awhile then stopped for a few days, Now i've gotten a total of 7 eggs from her within the last 4-5 weeks. Starting with a fart egg, Softshell, Softshell, Crushed, More softshells and a weird deformed egg that was half soft and half hard. Whats up? I havnt changed anything about their feeding and the others are laying great

    Feed is Manna pro layer pellets mixed with a lil sweet feed and a small amount of crack corn threw in every once in awhile, along with greens sometimes, I gave her some yogurt and fed some egg to her a few times to see if that would help, Nothing. She acts just fine on all other things, eats good and is active

    But for a side joke she is really intent to keep up with my other two halrequins, collecting eggs and she dropped out a softshell egg right in front of me so I wouldnt leave hers behind [​IMG]

    You might want to try feeding more laying feed and less sweet feed and cracked corn. [​IMG]

    Quote:tried that also by cutting it out, How I normally do it is just plain layer with like a sprinkle of sweet feed over it, and hardely ever crack corn only when I have it which is the same way
