My boyfriend and I are new to the chicken world this year... we have been patiently waiting our first egg for some time, although we werent going to start looking out for another 2 weeks bc our oldest chickens are only about 18.5 weeks old. My boyfriend noticed when we went out to the coop this evening that the one pullet was in the same exact spot he left her in when he put the girls back in the coop this afternoon to let our dog out for a potty break. She had some white liquid on her butt and she was squatting so I said "We're getting our first egg!" and we were so excited. Not even 5 minutes later as we were keeping the other girls away from her so she could have some privacy, Dottie popped out her first egg! Only problem: the shell was soft and open. Here is a picture! Please help! Is this normal? WHAT ARE WE DOING WRONG?!? We havent given them calcium or layer feed bc I read nightmares stories about giving your pullets calcium too soon. But theyve had some yogurt here and there and some other treats with trace calcium in them. Im FREAKING out!!!
