Eggs different today.

I am writing this because coincidentally I had two separate issues today from my two layers. They have been laying perfectly until today. Their daily routine is, I let them out to free range in the back yard, then put them in at night and they have layer feed in the run/coop.

The Black Australorp laid a small egg about half the size of normal, but other then the extra small size, the shell was perfect.

The White Leghorn laid a soft egg, no shell, very rubbery.

Like I mentioned earlier, this is the first time this has happened for either of them and I found it strange that they both had an egg issue today.

Any help will be appreciated.

How old are each of the birds and how long have they been laying? Has there been any change in routine or stressors in the last 36 hours or so?

Thanks for responding. They are both 7 1/2 months old. Not really any stress or routine change as far as I can see. It has been cold the last couple of days. 28 at night and 50 during the day which is a little colder then they are used to. Been laying for about 2 months.

They are new to laying. There can be hiccups as their bodies adjust to laying. I wouldn't worry unless it becomes a regular occurrence. Make sure you have oyster shell available that they can take as they need it.
