We just went to let our three, 24-week old chickens out of their coop and found 2 softish shelled eggs on the floor under the roost. One was softer than the other. All three girls have produce an egg per day--in their next boxes--since they started laying 3 weeks or so ago. So I go to open the outside run to the back yard, and find two more eggs in the run from either yesterday or the day before! That's 10 eggs in a 24 hour period from three chickens! Could both the soft ones have come from the same chicken and surprised even her last night?
