Hey all! With the colder weather approaching, a couple of my girls are going through some pretty gnarly molting. One of my Easter eggers hasn’t been laying for the last couple weeks(I know this because she is the only one out of 16 chickens who lays very light brown eggs) due to her molt. Two nights ago when I was doing my head count, I noticed egg white and a yolk on the floor of the coop. There was no eggshell, no soft shell, just the white and the yolk. Last night when I was checking on them, I noticed another broken egg in the same spot, this time with a soft shell. Still no hard shell though. This is right below where my EE perches, and I was wondering if this could be due to her molt, or if something worse is happening. She has always laid in a nesting box, never just out in the run like that. She is no longer a pullet, but some of the girls she roosts with are. Any ideas?
