    Hens just got moved into the chicken fortress and seem VERY happy wih it [​IMG] but one hen just laid a Hanford egg -- all inside, no shell. Freakish. Normal or needs attention?

    I think it's probably nothing to worry about. It just happens from time to time. Do you give them oyster shell normally?
