    I let my girls out to free range this afternoon and one of them left this at my door step. All soft (no shell) and looks like she delivered both today and tomorrow's egg at one time. WEIRD!

    I heard that wen a hen lays for the first couple times, the egg may look weird. Ex: yolkles, no shell, misshapen, huge, tiny, ext.

    Quote:I have 4 who just started to lay and all have had nice healthy shells. Not all chickens have deformed eggs at first. I agree with scbatz33. I think they may need more calcium in their diet. [​IMG] You could offer oyster shell.
