    10. Shell less eggs. A shell less consists of a yolk, albumen and membrane, but has no shell at all. The egg contents are protected by the outer membrane only. These are often seen in pullets coming into lay. Causes are:

    - Immature shell gland (young layer);

    - Nutritional deficiency, usually lack of calcium and vitamins E, B12 and D as well as phosphorous and selenium;

    - Certain diseases, such as Newcastle disease, infectious bronchitis, avian influenza, egg drop syndrome;

    - Exposure to very high temperatures and extremely high or low humidity levels;

    - An infestation of internal or external parasites, such as worms, mites or lice;

    - Stress prompting the hen to lay an egg prematurely, before the shell is formed;

    - Egg laying while molting;

    - Exposure to toxins, such as mold, fungi, bacteria.
