My girls just started laying I have had about 2 dozen in the last 2 weeks. all of them are the green/blue ones and first brown one today. I noticed when cracking them they are extremely hard shell. They have laying pellets all the time and oyster shell all the time. i think this is great but is it normal thanks

Mine are relatively new to laying as well; no more than 4 1/2 weeks of laying.
I've noticed the same thing. Just keep offering the oyster shell and their layer pellets free choice. It's normal.
