    Have 22 that are close to laying.. Im pretty sure that a couple have started in the last couple of weeks, we have found a couple very small eggs that had very hard shells , an today found 2 eggs that shells were VERY soft an must have got stepped on because I just found the shell ( almost like skin). Is this the way they start ??? Thanks for reading an takin the time to help [​IMG]

    Yep, at first they start laying some small some soft and some double yolkers.
    They get more regular after the first or second week.
