    my goldlaced cochen is laying thin walled eggs tha will not hach what can i do to fix ? i keep O SHELLS OUT FOR THEM AT ALL TIMES BUT STILL DONT FIX THE THIN EGGS any ideas ??? please help
  2. I had a pullet that began to have thin shelled eggs while she was eating Purina Layena plus had oyster shell available and received yogurt weekly. I began to feed her separate from the others and added oyster shell to a mash of alfalfa/yogurt and cooked blackeyed peas. It took nearly a week but her eggshells are no longer thin.

    Good luck. [​IMG]

    Give them a bowl of milk, cheese, yogurt, anything with calcium.

    I have new girls who won't eat yogurt. I found out that turnip greens have 28% calcium...who knew? They will eat the greens.
