    My 3 yr old laid a soft shell egg today and her bottom is dirty. I read earlier about probios for her diet. Is there a certain one I should use?

    When they lay a soft shelled egg they need calcium. Offer oyster shell on the side in addition to her feed. And do you have her on a layer ration feed?

    You may want to start a thread at "chicken behaviors and egg laying." and see what response you get.
