    The two hens on the right front are both New Hampshires. We got them from our local Tractor Supply. The Buff Orpington in the middle is also from Tractor supply. They get them from Mount Healthy hatcheries. We got six New Hampshires four years ago and they have been great layers of extra large eggs. The egg shells were very strong. Now only two are left. One of them still lays pretty regularly. Both hens have thin shells now. They didn't like oyster shells when they were young. We gave them crushed egg shells on their food. Now after the shell problems we add both to their feed and they'll eat it but the shells have not improved.
