    "My Coturnix Quail laid an egg with a second Shell-less egg attached. Is this Common?"

    So this was her first lay, she is about 5.5 weeks old and the last to start laying.
    I actually watched her do it. It was strange, and she looked like she was in pain. she seems healthy and happy tho and my Roo loves her so I think she is alright. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated thank you guys:

    Thanks,
    Skye:)
