    Hello, we have 4 hens, all on the same diet. One of them has a problem in that the yolk comes out loose and then there is the white membrane which I assume is unformed shell that we have to pull out of her. This has happend one time about couple of months ago and again yesterday and today. I already pulled out part of the membrane and she is now in the nesting box. She waddles and her wings are down. Any ideas how to help her? Thank you.

    She might not have enough calcium in her body to produce good egg shells. I would recommend starting to give you hens oyster wheels. You can buy them at a Runnings or I'm sure any other farming store. Just try and get them more calcium as that is essential.

    Thank you, is it normal for just one hen to be affected?
