    Sometimes that just happens the eggs don't form. It could also be a lack of Calcium so it would not hurt to give the Oyster shells

    You could do that make sure you mash them real good. We usually save the shells from the eggs we eat then crush those up and give it to the flock. The only thing that scares me with this is if my flock becomes effective eaters not sure if they know or not it's just me
