    hahah omg good! im guessing it is one of the birds who is just starting because i got a very soft shelled egg today with no yoke. they have good quality layer feed but i think im going to supplement with some oyster shell. the weather also has been really odd here so im thinking that hasnt helped any!

    thanks for all the help!
