    I have this Banty hen that will one day lay a hard shelled egg, then she'll become ill looking and the next day she lays a soft shelled egg. She is on the same feed as my other laying hens and they have no problems! Any suggestions would really help!

    We had a young girl do that but it finally subsided. It could be as simple as a hickup in the system or the need for extra calcium. I know that there are more experienced people here than myself but I would do a search on this site to find out more.

    get some more calcium into her because I can almost gaurantee thats what it is. Do you use oyster shell??? There is a thread or very big post in egglaying and behavior that should help you also. Dont worry it will be okay!!! [​IMG]
