    What is she leaking? What does it look like? You might want to give her a warm bath and see if you can gently flush her vent.

    Dry her well and give her a crushed Tums. Not Rolaids. Hide the crushed tums in a bit of scrambled egg if you have to.

    Are you feeding layer pellets?

    Do they have access to chicken grit?

    Most important do they have access to crushed oyster shell.

    If not get all of the above and you shouldn't have anymore soft egg problems.
