Two laying RIR's about 7 months old, we had one white egg recently that had a rough'ish shell, which we think was one of the RIR's and I just saw a post that the heat can cause them to lay before the bloom is put on the shell. That egg was laid right under the hanging feeder. We just go two soft or no shell eggs that were laid on the ground outside the coop. It was right in front of the door to go back in from their hour or so of free ranging at the end of the day. Both the RIR's had just been in that area. We also have 4 pullets that are about 4 months old, one of them is a Brahma who has been making clucking noises recently and her vent is slightly moist and a little relaxed, and our Blue Plymouth Rock is about the same size as the Brahma and almost making real chicken noises. She was in the nesting box when we went to put them all in the roost area. One was very small and all yolk and pretty moist on the outside, where the other was a good size egg with a thicker membrane/shell but still very soft and it had a good sized yolk as well as white part. I just thought it was interesting and I would share. I did not check the Brahma's vent tonight, but did check Blue's and it was fairly relaxed so I think she is the one who laid the two eggs today.
