    Do you feed your chics oyster shell? I mix it with thier food so they get it regardless, some people put it in a separate feeder and offer it to their chickens to decide if they want/need it. Even with force feeding them the oyster shell, I've gotten the occasional shelless egg and one weak shelled egg. I am not familiar with water quality affecting egg quality, I would think that it wouldn't since my chics would rather drink from a puddle than their waterer...but you never know. I'd check the water just in case especially if it is something that may affect your family...
