    Soft eggs can be caused by low calcium, stress, heat, and beginning the laying cycle and when it winds down, make sure to keep a bowl of oyster shells available at all times and try to keep any stress down, it's not that unusual for a hen to lay a few each season.

    ^^^ Ditto Old Hen covered it. Be mindful of table scraps or other feeds that might deplete calcium levels.
