    So I received my first egg on Saturday, which was really soft and was two eggs attached together. I believe it was from my black sex link which is just a little over 16 weeks old. I have since had nothing. Is this normal, acceptable, problematic? All of my birds are still full of energy, eating, drinking, etc so I don't think any of them have an egg or the remnants of a egg stuck inside of them. I'm just curious. Here is a picture of the egg that I received on Saturday.
