I told my co-worker I'd ask the experts. She has one hen that has been laying eggs without a firm shell. She says the hen gets lots of calcium - but I was wondering if any of you have any suggestions for her. Anything would help. thanks

about 95% of an egg is calcium, that is alot a poor hen has to spare! and sometimes she cant! dont worry, they will start to have shells soon

Neat to look at,but glad I get normal ones now! I had a few when the hen was sick.Could try some of the chicken vitamin powder in water.
