    Will a chicken fix her eggs somehow, had a chicken that the shells were thin and breaking when she layed them, and now I have a little smaller egg with a strong shell, and since then I haven't had a broken one, just wondering if they can fix it themselves?

    Yes, more calcium, Vitamin D3, and animal protein etc can result in to stronger and better eggshells as well as more eggs,
