    Hello friends! Over the last few days a few of our flock have started laying. Yay!!! We have had 3 beautiful brown eggs (a little bit calcium speckled) and two... not so much. One with a brittle shell and one with a rubbery shell Both were destroyed when we found them, neither in the nesting box. It's normal for the first eggs to be inconsistent correct?? I thought I remembered reading it in another post but can't find it now. They are on layer crumbles and do have access to oyster shells although it seems they rarely eat them. [​IMG]

    Hello fellow BYC'er I am new here but I concur with you that when young chickens start out it can take a little while for their systems to work themselves out so you can get 'proper' eggs. I put in the thread below to give you reassurance that we are both on the 'same' page.
    Hope this helps...
