I have 4 chickens and over a week ago now I had 2 eggs with very weak soft shells that were laid from their roost, not the nest box, which I've heard is common for the first ones. The next day, the same exact thing. That was over a week ago and I have not had a single egg (or egg mess) since. I've been searching this site for someone who has had the same issue but couldn't find anything. Do chickens often have this much time between laying when they are first getting going? They are coming up on 5 months old now. Thanks!!
