My RIR was fine yesterday, today, I'm seeing this coming out of the vent. She's acting fine. What's going on?

Just keep an eye out for her. Is she just coming into lay after a molt? Does she have access to oyster shell? Just hoping it's an isolated incident. I agree it was likely a shell-less egg that broke inside.

Thanks for that, I've been feeding them Layena with calcium and have never supplemented with Oyster shell. I might get a couple soft shells a month out of flock. I have now decided to add a bin with the Oyster shell. My 7 hens will be 2 years old in June. The first winter, just when they started to lay, I had a light timer to keep the days longer for them and production was great. This year, I let nature take its course. I'm getting on average 3 per day right now, not sure if that's normal but they seem very healthy and happy.
