One of our hens has been laying soft shelled eggs for a few months now. We offer oyster shell, egg shell, and layer pellets. All five hens free range and are offered the same things. DH thinks we ought to cull and eat her so I haven't tried antibiotics for obvious reasons. I have never culled or processed a chicken but have culled other pets when they were sick, but we didn't eat them since they were A) sick and B) puppies, hedgehogs, etc. My concerns over this bird is not so much should we cull her but should we eat her. What do ya'll think?
