    I have a 2year 4 month old RIR who is quit laying over the last 2 months she got to where she was laying torpedo shaped eggs then laid a few soft shelled eggs she has laid about 4-5eggs in the last two 1/2 months she is healthy, not molting, why is she not laying is she washed up at 2 yr 4months old? whats up with the torpedo eggs?
    plus one of her babies has starting laying and every egg she lays has a powdery build up in spots on her eggs some brush off others of hard warts
    they both eat laying crumbles, have grit and oyster shell
