    I have a pullet that just started laying... A perfectly formed egg without a shell and right next to it a yolk. This has happened three times over the course of the past week. I have never seen this before. All the girls get layers' feed and plenty of oyster and egg shells in their diet along with daily treats of fruit, veggies and oatmeal. Has anyone ever experienced this? I know I have heard of soft eggs being laid by new layers (she is a newbie) but the yolk being laid separately as well????[​IMG]
