Freckles latest egg

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.

      She actually looks fine today which is when her next egg is due so I am hopeful of an improvement. Cinnamon laid today after her break which is good news too.
