My girls started laying this last week. I have 6 Gold Sex Links, 1 Rhode Island Red and 1 Lavender Orpington. I know Rain, the Lavender, isn't laying. That breed is very slow to mature, and Rain is a little younger than the others. Maggie Mae, one of our Sex Links, isn't laying yet. She's showing zero signs. Within one week, we went from 1 egg (our first) to 5 eggs per day. They were a little small at first, but they're getting bigger. That's pretty normal I understand. I've also heard that soft, water-balloon like eggs are kinda common for first time layers. When I went out to check on them this evening after securing them in their coop because they've been trying to sleep in the nesting boxes, there was a water-balloon egg sitting under one of the chickens. I figured it was from the one that hadn't started laying yet but was close. We have 6 that are showing signs of being ready to lay but only 5 eggs a day. When we went out a final time to make sure they were ok, another water-balloon egg was sitting under the chickens in about the same place as the earlier one. That means that the same baby had to lay 2 in one night, or it means that a hen that's already been laying good eggs dropped this mess. Since there were 2 in the same night, is this a possible calcium deficiency? Or is it more likely to be because they're all new layers? I don't want to over correct and give them too much calcium.
