    Need help now my White Leghorn seems like she's egg bound and has been laying shelless eggs just with the insides of the eggs on the ground(clear &yellow) and she drops them anywhere. She's gone to lay but she hasn't made anything in the last few weeks except the one day she drop some liquid that would be the inside of the egg on the ground. She can still push out like clear fluid and yellow fluid of what would be inside the egg out of her vent but she's very full and on the side of lethargic.... She's really not moving around much. Please advise!

    She has had softer shelled eggs and she's about two years old and I think because we have chick starter feed out there she probably doesn't get enough calcium and get to eat enough of the layer feed. I have occasionally put out crushed egg shells for them to eat. I've got a flock of approximately 20 free ranging (All) including some pullets, 2 turkey's and a couple cockerels. Fyi
