    We've just had two hot days (27 and 28 C) and on both days I've gotten an extra egg, the girls have laid their normal first egg in the morning and then Eve (I think) has laid an extra, soft shelled egg around 4pm.

    This happen to anyone else? Is it the weather? Or is it the fact that she's still young and her system hasnt settled down? Although she's laid regularly since she started, this is the first hiccup in her system.
