First eggs, one with very thin shell


In the Brooder
Apr 4, 2021
I’m so excited that my girls laid their first eggs! I found 3 eggs today! Two were in their pool and one on the ground. One in the pool was very thin shelled, kinda soft. I’m guessing it’s the one girl who seems to be more timid. Do I just add chick grit to their food? What food do y’all use? Maybe I need something better/different?

Definitely good to provide oyster shells if you don't. Some ducks will also have funky eggs when they start to lay. As they work out the kinks, their eggs become more normal. That may be part of what it's going on. Still want to keep an eye on it.
