Hello, I have been reading several topics on this website for the past couple of months. I decided to become a member. I have started raising chickens this year. My daughter and her friends got me a rooster and a hen. Not sure how old the roo is but the hen is about 2 years old. She's challenging me as to my knowledge of caring for chickens. She only lays eggs about every 2-3 days. Her eggs at first were good strong evenly colored eggs. Then they gradually got softer and softer. I was only feeding her laying crumble; so i got her some oyster shell. The shells got better but wer real rough (gritty). And just this morning.........got another soft one. Not sure what is wrong......maybe henopause haha. Any advise would be great. Oooo and i also just bought 6 babies yesterday. They are so cute!
