    When we did our late check last night I watched one of my RIR make what should have been an egg. All that came out was white and membrane no shell or yolk that I saw. They are getting flock raiser now. They have oyster shell free choice, not possitive she is using it though. We have found fairy eggs before but didn't know who was making them. She appears otherwise healthy and active so I don't think she is retaining the shell. What can cause this? Is this a sign of old age? Don't know how old she is but would guess close to 2 years.
    Also have considered going back to layer formula as all my birds are now 4-6 months old. Will this be bad for the young roos? Thanks

    I think layer pellets will be fine for your roos.
