    I have a mixed flock of 14 hens I have 4 white leghorns 10 months old 1 of them has layed a soft shell egg everyday for the last week either in the nest box or on the floor of the coop I feed them layer crumble free choice oyster shell and occasionally treats like bread or veggies I can't figure out which leghorn is doing it or why I hardly ever see any eatting the oyster shell help please I'm starting to feel like a failure

    sounds like she's getting picked on, stress can cause soft shelled eggs and with her not laying in the box that leads me to think she's at the bottom of the pecking order and may be getting bullied a little.

    It almost seems like these eggs have no yolk they just like jelly inside
