    Have you had infectious bronchitis run through your flock? Eggs like that are often a sign of a previous infection. Doubt it's a calcium problem.

    Those are very strange looking. Almost looks like paper mache (sp).

    No on the Infection and I only have 1 hen in there right now that is over 1 year and her age is unknown, but she is an EE and lays peachy colored eggs. Right now I have about 15 layers in the main flock and all except EE have been raised here, I have 1 game hen that is seperated right now brooding that came here older but most have been here since day 1.

    Also the flat part is very easy to break but the rest is like rock.

    My hens did this when they first started laying. they felt like ping pong balls, a little squishy. so i started to give them free choice oyster shells and it stopped.
