    Maybe she needs more calcium? Do you add oyster shells to her food?

    If the egg shells are really thin, I would suggest supplementing her feed with oyster shell. It sounds like she's not getting enough calcium.
    And I agree with BackyardCountry, she's not going to be laying as many eggs as she ages.
