I have a problem and looking for Help
One of my chickens has repeatedly delivered eggs without shell and now without membrane.
At first the eggs started with extra shell and worm like scrolls of on her eggs, soon after her eggs came out with no shell at all.
This went on for a few days and as she got out of the nest box she punctured the eggs.
She has now moved on to just ejecting the inner egg contents with no shell or membrane.
All my birds are new to the coop, having said that we are talking weeks old and not just days.
I purchased them all as P.O.L birds from a big breeder. I took the time to look around his set up and was really impressed with its cleanliness and the health of his birds and broody stock. I have been back to the breeder and he is at a loss.
The other birds are producing eggs as normal.
The bird I am concerned about is fit and well, looks in great condition and has everything to eat and drink.
WHAT IS GOING ON ??
I have checked for mite infestation, Nothing. Provided her with tonic drink, and totally cleaned and disinfected the coop.
I Treated her and all the other birds for worms and all the other birds continue to lay eggs every day without problems.
She has always laid her eggs in a nest box even the ones without shell. but now she, just squirts the inner egg contents whilst resting on a perch directly into the soil pan.
Can anyone offer me some sound advice
