In the Brooder
- Jul 23, 2021
So I’m a chicken newbie and I’ve had a few issues with my flock so I’m paranoid, I have one hen laying right now she’s been laying 2 weeks?? I was in the coop checking on the ladies before bed and Red was standing kind of still I asked her if she was ok and she turned around and laid an egg except I watched the whole thing and she spit out a soft egg but with no top so I literally watched the yolk and egg pour on the ground followed by 1/2 soft shell I panicked and grabbed it real quick scared the others would eat it and become egg eaters before I started getting real eggs so I didn’t get a picture right away but I got one after I removed it! It’s late and it’s almost the ladies bed time is it possible she just spit it out 1/2 developed? She has been laying 2 days then off a day, today should have been her off day! Also should I be concerned about an infection?
