I have gotten a couple soft eggs over the past couple of weeks. Yesterday and today I got deflated beige balloons. My Jersey Giants are three years old. I also have a Dominique and a Lacey who are just over a year. What's going on? I feed commercial food with extra treats. I got three new chicks this spring who are now part of the flock. They are still getting chick food. Could my problem be that the hens are eating the chick food?

Chick feed if too low in calcium for laying hens. Offer calcium on the side, most people keep oyster shell grit available at all l times for laying hens. Good luck.
