    My EE 6 months old was acting funny, feathers all puffed and not walking standing in middle of run liquid dripped from her bottom. She let me catch her which never happens and I looked at her rear and it looked swollen. Brought her to the house. And as I'm walking a soft shelled egg plopped out.
    So was she just laying a egg in the run or was the egg stuck and my lifting her help the egg expel? She seems fine now.

    I do t know what was going on but the pullet is doing well. But I still think that soft shelled egg was stuck.

    I put two eggs and shell in the blender along with a smallish hand full of oyster shell which pulverized the oyster shell and microwaved it all and fed it to the hens. Today all 9 eggs we have gotten so far have been good hard shells.
