    Bird: Reisha, a Light Brahma pullet about 30 weeks old.

    Problem: Has laid three total eggs, all with no shell. One was without a yolk.

    I know that chickens lay first eggs without shells and yolks. Yolkless egg got thrown over the house to prevent an outbreak of Basilisks, the other looks to have been laid from a roost and splattered.

    I have given additional oyster shell, free choice. I increased A, D, and E through a supplement added to feed. Now that the other birds in the coop have gone off lay for the winter, I'm a little at a loss as to what to do to see if we can get this girl laying.

    It sounds like you've made the necessary changes. I guess you'll have to wait till it warms up and they start laying again to see if she's laying well.
    What is their feed? I don't see it listed.
