So, my leghorns are around 18 weeks and they have been free ranging during daylight hours. My son found an egg last week (yay) in the bush by the hen house. So, I am trying to get them to stay inside for much longer now. That being said, because they were free range, they were really not too interested in their layer-ration food. Now that they are inside they have little choice I guess! So, yes, onto my question. This morning I found egg number 2 in a nest box (yay) but it was really soft and misshapen. Is that b/c of the free range thing and not getting enough calcium? I guess I will add oyster shell to my husband's ever expanding after-work shopping list for today!
