My 4 year old New Hampshire Red Cheesey Poof laid her 3rd shelless egg yesterday in the past couple of months.
She often looks constipated but for sure is not egg bound.
I've heard shelless eggs occur when the hen is low in Calcium and/or Vitamin D, or worse, has a serious viral disease! 😬
Any advice helps, thank you.
 
I had a group of hens several years ago that would lay shell-less eggs when they were stressed, for example when there would be a predator in the coop the night before or we would move the coop
We didn't move Cheese to another coop recently, and we don't have many night predators, unless you count the two skunks that come out and argue every night. 🤣
