    I have one hen that when she began laying her eggs were very bumpy, with a thin shell. the bumps on the outside are almost like sand and rinse or scratch off. Today her egg's shell was so thin that it almost didn't have a shell, you could crush it with just slight pressure. Wondering what is causing this and if it can be helped. Thanks
