    I have one gal whose egg shells are paper thin causing the egg to break after being laid, I've given my flock oyster shell in their food and I give them plain yogurt once a week. Is there anything else that might be causing this gal to lay broken eggs?

    You could give her some tums, human calcium or calcium gluconate orally and see if that helps. Dose I use is 100mg per 2.2 pounds.
