Welcome to BYC
Soft shell eggs are often seen with new layers who are still getting the hang of egg laying. Just make sure they get fed a good quality layer feed and/or offer them some crushed oystershell or eggshell on the side, so they can help themselves when they feel they need a calcium boost.
Welcome! I'm too new to have any advice, we haven't gotten our first egg yet, but wanted to wish you good luck.
