    Alright my chickens or at least one of them laid two eggs the other day. The shells were soft and I have not seen any sign of any other egg since. I have add 100% organic layer feed plus oyster shells. Plus. A new product that is organic and claims it is made. From bones ground up.

    How old are these chickens? Soft shell eggs happen from time to time, even when you are doing everything right. Also, common with new layers while they work out the kinks in their egg laying factory.

    Quote:x2. I usually break open the soft shell and scramble the contents and then feed it back to them. Dogs love them too. No sense in the egg going to waste!
