    i got a few soft shelled eggs from my girls...

    make sure you are giving them layer pellets and have oyster shells for them

    yeah... oyster shell should will make the shell hard.... if you have it out for them, make sure you see this one chicken eating it everyday... maybe she's not getting any?
