    Hello, I found one of my ISA Browns in one of my nesting boxes. I found this white chip like thing beside her and stuck to her bum.
    Here is the picture of the chip. I also found a broken frozen egg like thing splattered all over the floor of my coop.

    Is there a shell? looks like it may have been a soft shelled(more like a membrane) egg. They lay them every now and then. Keep an eye on her, check her vent. You may want to give some extra calcium, get some oyster shells form the feed store, they are cheap. They need lots of calcium to make a shell every other day

    I'll feed her some of the oyster shell each day. See if that helps! Thank you!!
