Not enough calcium? you could try scrambled eggs, or using oyster shells which work great, is their any physical problem with your hen? is their any yolk forming in the shells?

Yes, there is perfect yolk. No physical problems that I am aware of.

Are you in the northern hemisphere?
It's molting season and you can get some funky eggs around molting time.
Might try tossing out some OS with the seed treats, make sure she is eating them.

Calcium + Vitamin D. (Vitamin D helps her absorb and utilize the calcium). As a hen grows older, she lays larger eggs... so she needs more calcium to wrap the yolk and albumen in.
