    What can i do if my hen is laying without a shell? She eats enough protien and oyster shells. Is there anything else they need to lay eggs with shells?

    make sure she has plenty of food, water, and oyster shells. there are tablets you can put in her water that will give her extra nutrients. give her yogurt, scrambled eggs, corn, lettuce, broccili, ect. to help her. also make sure she has not been recently traumatized. hope this helps![​IMG]
