Went to look for eggs yesterday as it had been a couple days. Was cleaning out my boxes and I noticed one on the floor of the run out of the box. It was an egg without a shell. It was squishy and delicate, I showed it to my friend and we were both scratching our heads. I ended up chucking it in the bushes. Just an off day for one of my hens or is it something to be concerned about? All of my other eggs gathered were firm and healthy.

It happens sometimes. If you're worried about it you can provide some extra calcium, like oyster shells. I've had things like this happen as isolated incidents, though. It seems like every once in a while something weird just pops out for no real reason.
