I noticed one of cochin pullets acting strange, kind of droopy and wings hanging a bit. I picked her up and looked her over she looks fine. I started to rub her crop and I didn't feel any solid food in there. All at once an egg came out of her without a shell. Just the yellow and clear parts.

Do you think she is acting strange because she is getting ready to start laying. Or do I have something to worry about?

Yes it was her first. I've seen some lay thin shells but never no shell.

They get egg shells and yoguart as well as a good laying pellet.
