Well, got my first soft shell today. Or what WAS a soft shell. Apparently one of the ladies must have been caught off guard and layed up on the board they all insist on gathering on at night. (They rarely perch...dorks). Anyhow, so when I opened the coop today, there it was, squished from feet. They have their all flock feed and oyster shell at will. And I have enough egg shells now to start offering them as well. Guessing it was a fluke since the girls are all starting to lay now. Four of my 7 are now laying. Or now maybe 5 lol. Glad I put separate nesting boxes up high for my 2 bantams that I did integrate into the flock. They stay up and away from the big girls when necessary and enjoy "down" time while the others are all out free ranging for the day. But those boxes I added were just in time! 3 days later, one of the bantams layed!! Woohoo!
