    These are our first eggs Ever, from any of our chickens!!
    From what I can tell, Domineak the Dominique, just laid both of these eggs.
    These are her first EGGS, both at once and neither intact, both are soft, and yes there are 2 yolks.
    Is this a product of being egg bound? Do I need to worry about eggshell stuck in her vent?
    What should I do?

    Additional info:
    She seems to be doing ok, we just gave them extra oyster shell.
    Still worried about any shell that might be stuck in there....

    Is this normal for a first egg(s)
    Both were definatly laid today and within a period of one hour.

    I had some weird first eggs from my Blue Orp. The very first one had no shell and no membrane; just a double yolker laying on the ground! I wouldn't worry. That's common to have them lay odd eggs at first.

    I have to agree with Cynthia....new layers never cease to amaze me. One just never knows whats going on with them. Im sure she will be ok....can you give her crushed egg shells? Even from store bought eggs...but baked "clean" in the oven.

    Our first eggs were funny looking too. A couple of them were like water balloons. She will be ok.
