    When your chicken lays their first egg is it normal for the egg not to have a shell.plus will they only lay. One and not lazy another for awhile.

    Yes , that happens sometimes. I was told that after mine started laying for the first time to give them cruched oyster shells you purchase at a feed store. It is suppose to help with proper egg production and make the shells stronger.
