Hmmmm....I'm a little concerned. I got 4 hens on Wednesday from a friend of my dad's (barred rock, columbian rock, rir, silkie). They are all somewhere around a year old. The first night we got a beautiful egg, the next day another (they were different colours and I assumed from 2 different birds). The 3 standards were laying well before they came here and I don't know about the silkie. There was nothing in the nest box at 8am this morning and I checked again at noon and all that was there was about 1/3 of a shell and membrane but that was it. Nothing else in the box or the rest of the coop and no evidence of anything else. The shell does feel soft and it's kind of crushed but stuck to the membrane. Do you think that's all that came out??? A transition thing because the place and routine changed?? OR - do you think they ATE IT?!
