    I have a eight month old hen that has started to lay very thin shelled eggs and they are also light in color , they use to be brown all of my other hens shells are hard. I give them oyster shells and grit they free range . I also feed them good laying crumbles, she has been laying strange like this for about three weeks . All my hens a the same age and they all eat the same thing and there eggs shells are nice a hard. Maybe she is not eating the oyster shells ? If anyone has any ideas on what I can do I would appreciate it. Thanks
