I have 7 chickens. 1 hen and 6 pullets. My hen has been laying all summer long. Some of the pullets just started joining her this week. On Monday I had 3 eggs in my nesting boxes. 2 large brown eggs and one smaller white egg. I have 2 White Leghorn pullets so I figure the small white egg came from one of them. My hen is a Buff Orpington and one of the large brown eggs could have came from her, but the other would have had to come from my RIR's or BSL's. Yesterday upon first inspection I only had 1 large brown egg, but it had a small streak of blood on the shell. About an hour later I checked again and there was a small, almost translucent egg with a rubbery shell. Is it normal for new laying hens to have a bit of blood on the shell (it was a very small amount). I assumed it could be normal since this was the first time this pullet had pushed one out. And is it also normal for a first time layer to lay a poor shelled egg like the thin rubbery one I found?
