    Haven't had chickens since I was a kid, and that is some time ago. I don't think I ever realise they have such wonderful personalities. We got our three girls before they started laying and there was great excitement as each one laid their first egg. All three are now laying, foraging arouond the backyard, coming up to say hello. Loving it. I had a query which I asked on another thread and which some people have already answered. One of the girls is trying to lay two eggs some days - one is fine and the second is very soft shelled. we are feeding layer pellets and have just got oyster shell for them so if it is a calcium problem that should help. Happy to hear any thoughts. Cheers from New Zealand. Col and Gay.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. If your hen has just started laying it can take awhile for her system to work out the glitches. Hope fully it will slow down the cycle, so eggs will be finished before popping out.
