    About a week ago my chicken laid a soft egg outside the coop.
    People told me it was normal and happens from time to time. (I am new at this chicken stuff lol)

    This morning I went to let them out and she had laid two what I think are soft eggs.

    The brown one is just like the one from the other day.
    but I am not sure what is going on with the white or clear one.

    Please give some advise....... Thanks

    It happens. It's taking time for her egg-laying system to sync together. I've seen it in some of my flock, when they begin to lay. Don't worry about it, providing it does not continue for weeks. As long as you are feeding them either layers feed or growers, with optional oyster shell, all is well.

    I am doing just what you said. So I will relax.
    The white egg is what worried me.
    Thanks
