My almost 20 week old ISA Brown who has been laying for 2 1/2 weeks just laid a soft shelled egg. She has been laying about 6 eggs per week. She consistently lays around 7-730 am. This morning she was in the box, but no egg. I didn’t think anything if it with her being a new layer and she has laid 5 eggs this week. Tonight, when they went on the roost, she was acting weird and squatted in the roost and out popped a soft shelled egg. She has never laid a soft shelled egg, or laid an egg after 8am. Is this just a fluke thing? She is eating grower feed because I have 10 week old chicks as well, but I do have oyster shell out. Should I change to all flock? Or continue the grower with oyster shell?
