    I leave a cup of oyster shell for them to eat at their leisure. I have had 3 incidents recently. One was just a yolk and two other times they were very thin shells. Those were from hens that just started laying though. Sorry I have no other ideas.

    This can be caused by laying while molting, nutrition issues, stress.
    This is good information on egg issues. Common egg quality problems

    More info is needed, if you really want an answer.
    How old is bird and how long has she been laying?
    What are you feeding?
    How many other birds do you have?
    Describe the rest of your flock and coop/run.

    I only have two birds including the rhode island red.She is under 6 months ad has been laying since i got her which was a 2 and a half weeks ago.I feed them layer pellets and they free range all day.They live in a spacious shed and use nest boxes but weren't used for the two weird eggs laid instead of one egg day.

    She's probably still new to laying, first month or so of laying cause see some funky eggs.
    That and the new environment can cause some glitches.
    I would not worry unless it a happens consistently.
