    The shell did not form properly. The interior membrane is like rubber. This happens sometimes. No need for alarm unless it happens a lot. May need to increase calcium. Buy a few dozen oysters and make some Oysters Rockafella. When you are done with the shells crush them up real good and put in a bowl for the quail to eat.
