    After reading some comments below someone said it is normal for first time layers to have some weird eggs. I gave them crushed egg shells this morning, which they all dived into. The other oddity was there was some bloody stool in the coop too. It was like a small clot on the poop. They all seem to be doing fine. I'm guessing this is normal?

    You know how they say it would be so much easier to raise kids if they came with a manual? Well chickens have books and they are still a mystery!
