    You will have eggs even without a rooster. They just won't be fertile eggs.

    Roosters have nothing to do with egg production. Make stew out of him and restore the peace!

    How old is your flock? Are they molting?

    Just to let you know - many people don't like all caps in discussion forums, it is considered shouting - better to use all lower case if you don't want to use the shift key.

    Welcome to BYC.

    It would be very helpful if you turned off your CAPS LOCK on your computer. Many of us do feel like it's like being yelled at online. [​IMG]

    As for the rubbery eggs, do your chickens have oyster shell or another source of calcium? They need layer feed and oyster shell to have enough calcium to lay eggs with good, hard shells.

    Good luck!
