    My two hens, Warren-breed, nearly 3 years old have been producing lash eggs in various sizes.The last real egg I had from either was last December.
    They can still eat and drink but standing like penguins, fluffed up and closing eyes pretty much most of days.
    Should I still keep feeding them with layers pellets or is this encouraging lash-eggs? I'd like to give them something better if there is better nutrition food.
