Hi, I got my first egg on Wed, which was normal-shelled. On Thursday I found egg remnants in the coop, but no shell or pieces so I'm assuming it was shell-less (only the membrane was there, with the contents gone, probably eaten by one or more of the hens). I put up a nest box and the RIR who laid the egg (s?) has even gone in to inspect it and arrange the shavings into a nest, but no eggs since. Is it normal to lay so sporadically at first, and most importantly, how do I keep them from eating the eggs again? I'm afraid this will become habitual.
