Is it normal for hens to have soft shell eggs??? This is the first time for my hens to lay. So far my dark cornish bantam Peanut has laid three strong legs. I do give them Oyster shell, but I have to get more. I thought I had enough yeah shame on me didnt mean to run out so please dont be too harsh on me okay.. I have them on the feed now that laying hens are suppose to have. Just wondering I have removed the shell and yolk. Im wondering who it came from???
