    I recently fed a different brand of layer and have noticed how much thinner my shells have been. I have switched back to my other layer. How long will it be until they get stronger shells? I have provided Calcium supplement and vitamins in the water. Thanks!

    I was hoping so! I was rinsing a few eggs off last night and they broke just under slight pressure. Amazing they aren't breaking in the nest boxes!
