I have four 6 month old Rhode Island Red hens. One of the hens, always manages to break the shell on her eggs immediately after laying them. They are not pecked, the membrane is never broken, and there is no evidence that any of them have tried to eat an egg. Has anyone else seen this, what can I do. This is my second flock of Rhode Island Reds, and I've never seen or heard of this. shells look like they have been smashed on one side.
