Hi all, Is it normal for a hen coming out of molt to lay eggs without shells? Yesterday afternoon my two-year old hen was in the nest box for about an hour. When I checked the nest box this morning I found her egg. A yolk and some albumen was contained in the sac but had no shell. There was also very little albumen. I've been offering oyster shell and grit as free choice. This hen was raised as a flock from a production farm. Here are my questions: 1. Is this a normal issue with post-molt hens? If so, how long will it take for them to start laying shells? 2. Are farm-raised hens fed calcium as part of their diet rather than free choice? I mean, are they less likely to take calcium if offered separate from their feed? 3. Is there anything else that might cause hens to lay no-shell eggs? Thanks for any advice and information!
