    Maybe she got a little blocked up and finally "had a movement" last night? My best guess....

    One of ours did that the other night. One regular and 2 soft shelled within about 6 hours. This was in the first month or so of laying. I think it was a kink. It's not normal but maybe the system was backed up.
