I am a new member, new to keeping chicken.

I am new to keeping chickens. I have got two chickens. One is a Bantam and she is always brooding and the other one is a Warren, she is laying eggs without hard shells. I am providing her with oyster shells and a good feed. What shall I do?
Hello and welcome to BYC! :frow Glad you joined.
What area you feeding them? I would give the Warren some human calcium citrate with vitamin D. Give her 400 mg daily for a week along with a good quality complete feed that offers 18-20% protein and keep that container of oyster shell on the side.
If you don't have fertile eggs to give the bantam or don't want her to hatch you need to break her broodiness. You can read about how to do that in this article.
