Small fragile egg

I have about 10 pullets that are ready to start laying. Got my first 2 eggs from them today. Both as expected were small but they also had thin weak shells. Is the shin shell normal for the first egg or 2? They are fed a premium layer crumble and have free access to grit and oyster shell at all times. Nice stocky young birds too.
soft shells are common even after they have been laying awhile due to they are just working out all the plumbing, if they have access to oyster shell and food, I would not worry about it b/c their bodies are just getting use to laying eggs so they need to push that calicum thru to the egg shell
