    Tonight I found a shell less rubbery egg in the coop. It was under neath where my araucana was roosting. She's my crooked beak and so far as I know, she's not laying yet. I understand that the first egg may be without a shell or there may be an issue of not getting enough calcium. I was prepared for that. But when I got this egg in the light after I scooped it, it seems to have been two eggs, with no shells, but one was broken.

    Do I have to be neurotic and worry that the second egg broke inside the chicken and will cause a horrible death or is this just something that can happen?

    As you indicated, odd things happen more often when they begin to lay, often for a month or so. You know what the need, so just continue to care for them, and hope for the best! Good luck.
