I have had my 3 hens for a month now and most days I get 1 or 2 soft shelled eggs that are broken or just soggy skins. I think they are just so thin they break very easily rather than the hens purposefully breaking them to eat them.
They have a mixed grit that includes oyster shell and Ive tried adding a calcium and mineral mix to their feed - but still the same. They get layers pellets and the odd treat but this is controlled as they spend most of the time in their run and then when Im home they trample round the lawn.
This morning I found a soggy skin smeared in blood. Any thoughts?
