    Why does this happen? At first I thought, oh no! Egg eating is starting to come back (I have pretty much fully stopped egg eating). But I looked close and there was no shell bits or anything. It looked like all the insides were still there but the yolk was broken. Any ideas??

    Maybe a soft shelled egg? Do your birds get oyster shell?

    Quote:I have been getting some soft shelled eggs, but none with absolutely no shell. They are on layena pellets by purina, but I have recently found out that the calcium level is very low in this feed and I would need to supplement with oyster shell. I checked the Walmart brand feed my family farm, and it has a much higher calcium level. Think I will stick with Walmart... It cheaper and better!!
