    Yesterday i found an egg lying on ground that was without shell and was not laid on nest, i am very confused about this, my hens do not free range and they eat layer pellets. Please help me. Thanks

    It's pretty normal for them to have a glitch in their system every once in a while!!

    It's nothing to worry about. . . And free ranging would not cause this, in fact in most cases it should make for better eggs. [​IMG]

    It is simply the new layer trying to adjust everything in her cycle. Shell-less eggs will pop up just as double yolkers, odd shaped eggs, and perhaps even slightly off-colored eggs in the beginning. [​IMG]
