Freckles laid her fourth, soft shelled egg, yesterday. She has been laying every other day and as before looked unhappy and took herself off to bed early once more.
When I went to check a bit later her egg was laying by the food dish. I imagine she came back out for a top up of pellets and laid it then. It obviously catches her by surprise when it comes.
I find it difficult to understand how Freckles has gone from the best shells to these soft shells. I am not seeing her go to the grit like she used to and wonder if this is why. I don’t know why she isn’t going to the grit though.
I really hope she improves soon as it is sad to see her laying eggs like these. I guess only time will tell.
