    I have noticed lately that the yolks of my hens eggs seem very fragile, they break easily once the egg is cracked. I am assuming they may be deficient in something but can't imagine what. They are on high protein layer pellets, bl oil sunflower seeds, (occasional scratch just as a treat) and eat lots of fresh veggies, meal worms, and apple cider vinegar in their water. Any ideas?
