    I bought 12 White Leghorns Yesterday. Since I got them I have had 9 eggs total and 2 tonight were soft shell like softer than jello... Could the move have caused this? They are about a year and a half old. Anything helps! Thank you!

    They need calcium, make sure to get them some oyster shell and mix it in all of the food.
    This should help.

    Thank You! My other hens EE's are laying really thick shelled eggs! They are in a different coop with the same food Laying Pellets and Laying Crumbles. My EE's are not laying near what the Leghorns but are good quality eggs with both. Minus the 2 soft eggs.
