I’ve had a girl recently lay a bunch of soft shelled eggs and just found a wrinkled egg. I have an idea of who the suspect is but i’m not quite sure. It’s most likely my buff orpington who is 15/16 weeks and 4 days. I would assume that because she’s so young is why she’s having weird eggs but all of my other girls are 24 weeks and have been producing just fine. I even checked her hips and she’s definitely ready for laying plus she squats for me and I’ve caught her making nests. Egg color is another indication that makes me think that it’s her where the only other hens with the same color are two light brahmas but I know I’m regularly getting eggs from those girls. Is there anything thing I can do to help her or is her body just working out the kinks? All of them are well taken care of and have plenty of food full access at all times plus free range and I save their egg shells and break them down and feed it back to them as supplements.
