    I have a 2 year old hen that is molting and while she was in molt, she did not lay. It seems that she is about done molting now and she has laid a a couple of eggs with no shells. Can I expect her to start laying normally again or has something gone wrong? She gets layer feed and oyster shell and free ranges. Last year she laid an egg everyday without fail.

    Give her time. I think she will turn around within a week. One of my girls laid rubbery shell-less eggs a few days last week. This week all seems normal.
