    i have a 2 year old hen, and this is her second time having a egg break inside her, she does not lay much anyway. Every time a egg breaks inside her she sits down and does not want to get up, then after two days she is fine and walking around, since she is high on the pecking order she does not get picked on sitting down, but i was wondering when will she stop laying? :confused: :idunno

    I saw yolk coming out of my hens vent. I soaked her in warm water & Epson salt and she expelled two soft eggs, leather like. Maybe she needs more calcium?

    I see the same, when she gets it i give her warm water and i will try Epson salt next time, i find it weird that after she had it i give them extra calcium with there high calcium food, I noticed my other hens eggs becoming softer but she is a newer layer.:barnie

    :)Thank you!:D
