    My chickens are just starting to lay on a regular basis. Every other day or so we have an odd shaped thin shelled egg. Also we have a problem with at least one of our hens laying outside the coop and run, during the evening free range. The first night the egg was not complete, no yolk, and not closed. Last night the other hens found the egg and ate it. What should I do?

    What kind of feed are you giving them?

    Dumor layer crumble, fresh corn, tomatoes, peanuts and they have about 4 hours to free range per day.
