In the Brooder
- May 19, 2020
I have 6 hens and somebody (as yet unidentified) is laying eggs with very brittle shells. The other girls are laying extremely gorgeous, hard, dark brown shelled eggs, but these are very pale and thin. I get one every day. The bottom is sometimes not even formed. The membrane keeps the egg from leaking, but the shell has a small hole where it never completely formed. The birds are just over 3 years of age. Is this common? Once I identify the hen, what can be done to correct it?
