    Today i had 3 eggs instead of my 2 that i had been getting...
    Except the 3rd egg had no shell,just that inner lining of the shell, wich was very thick and rubbery..then thier was this strange white tube filled in egg white..Is this normal for a new layer, oh and i do have oyster shell for them to eat..will she lay normal soon?

    I wouldn't worry. It's a staring thing. Sometimes they don't quite get it right or some non yolk stuff fell into the place where eggs are formed and a pseudo egg was made.
