    This is now my third funky egg! All in one week, but all have been different. No signs of sickness, no worms or parasites, feed & water cleaned daily. They are all new egg layers and my
    Legbar who does lay, I haven't seen an egg from in five days! The first this week was just a soft shell inside of a hard shell with no yolk. The second was a soft jelly egg shell and I don't know what to make of this!? Or what to do!

    New layers do that a lot. Their system is trying to figure out how to make eggs and sometimes throws out a weird one :)
    Just make sure they are on layer feed and have lots of oyster shell available free choice and give it time - within a few months they should have everything sorted out.

    Ok.. So I can expect these here and there? I know one seems to even lay 2 to 3 in 24 hours and my Olive Egger Legbar has laid for 10 days straight! It's just crazy! Thank you!

    Yes don't worry about it they're fine :) Just keep the calcium available to them

    One small suggestion: If they start laying golden ones, you might want to keep that a secret...[​IMG]
