    OK so i have 5 production reds that have come out of molt and have been producing at about 95% for about an month now. All of the sudden on is now laying an egg that is 3/4 good and the top 1/4 soft. one i saved had the membrane but almost no shell. The other 4 chickens are doing fine and all have free choice oyster shells available.

    Anyon have any ideas of the cause??

    Thanks in advance

    How frequently is this happening ?

    Do you have oyster shell out for them ?

    What are you feeding them ?

    How old are they ? ? ?
