Ok my buffs two of them layer soft shell eggs. Then nothing for two days now. Grrrrrrrrr. I want them to lay. They are squatting just not producing.... My wife says they are free loading. Lol

I wouldn't worry about it much. It just means that they are close. Both of my egg layers started out laying their first egg which was more like a bag than an egg. Then nothing for a few days. Then a few broken eggs inconsistently... Then an egg a day pretty consistently.
