    I found the strangest egg in the coop tonight. It has absolutely no shell on it, only the membrane holding it together. Not sure who laid it, one of our hens has been broody for the last 2 weeks. She was sitting in the nest box, but the egg was actually in another section of the coop. Does anyone know what could cause this?

    I had that happen and I think I was told it needs more calcium? And to feed it some cat kibble.

    It worked.
