We are getting a odd egg infrequently. There is no pattern, just every so often we get one. It does not have a hard outer shell, but a soft squishy shell. It is always laid in the roost and never in the nest box. Usually I find it broken, but I got one last evening intact. I have not been able to determine which hen is doing this either. I don't know if this is something to be concerned about, or just annoyed with, or if we are doing something wrong. I don't have any new layers, all are 1 old+ and have been laying. Any information on what I can do, of if this is a issue to be concerned about would be appreciated. Below is more important information on the case, and at the very bottom are pictures.. 1) What type of bird , age and weight (does the chicken seem or feel lighter or thinner than the others.) 3 wyandottes-2 1 year olds-1, 2+ year old 1 buff orpington-2 year old, 1 light Brahma-1 year old 2) What is the behavior, exactly. There is an laid egg on occasion without a hard shell. It is ALWAYS laid in the roosting area, never the nest box. This is infrequent, I can't tell who(s) doing it and why. They have all been laying normally otherwise, with thick shells. 3) How long has the bird been exhibiting symptoms? Don't know which bird, and it happens infrequently 4) Are other birds exhibiting the same symptoms? As far as I can tell there is only one bird doing it, but who? 5) Is there any bleeding, injury, broken bones or other sign of trauma. NO 6) What happened, if anything that you know of, that may have caused the situation. Nothing I'm aware of... 7) What has the bird been eating and drinking, if at all. All birds are eating, drinking normally. They are fed Layina laying crumbles with free choice grit and oyster shell. They are also allowed to free range some in the yard, and get occasional treats. 8) How does the poop look? Normal? Bloody? Runny? etc. Normal 9) What has been the treatment you have administered so far? None 10 ) What is your intent as far as treatment? For example, do you want to treat completely yourself, or do you need help in stabilizing the bird til you can get to a vet? As far as I'm aware this is not a emergency.... but I would like to know what I can do to prevent it. 11) If you have a picture of the wound or condition, please post it. It may help. Posted egg pics.. 12) Describe the housing/bedding in use chicken tractor, bedding is compressed wood pellets and wood shavings... These are all the eggs laid yesterday. Three are perfectly normal, one is not. In this photo I am squishing it a little to show how soft it is.... Our hens have free choice oyster shell and have strong shells, except for this random egg This egg is also very translucent and shows the thinness of the shell..
