Thread Starter 
Hey guy I have an asil hen which went broody at least 2 months age out of 10 eggs only one hatched after one month she started laying again its been 3 days now today she laid an egg in the morning which was normal but in the evening she laid another egg but it had no shell it was soft and now she laid again but this time it was deformed and soft. She is not sick she eats a lot and drinks fine she is 8 months old .guys plz help me what should I do I am so worried for her I just gave her a hard boiled egg and mixed with it the egg shell she ate it all. I don't want her to die I have heard that soft shell eggs can break inside a hen and kill it .I also grouded some calcium block and mixed it with some flour and water and gave it to her but she didn't liked it so much .plz help

I had the same thing. Don't worry; I believe she will regulate. Mine laid weird eggs for about a month, then stopped during the moult and now lays perfect eggs almost every day. I used to cook up the shell less ones for the chickens.

We just had one of our Dominiques act like she was egg-bound.  She ended up laying 2 eggs in a span of a few hours from each other; both had soft or no shell.  The very next day she was laying perfect eggs again, and back to her old self.
