    sounds like you need to amp up their calcium.

    I had one leghorn that did that most of the time and I had oyster shell available all the time. she was
    the only one that did that. It was so strange. Sometimes it would break as it was exiting. If I wasn't
    close enough to hurry and get it the other hens would eat it. Other evidence was a sticky mess in the
    nest box. [​IMG]

    They lay weird eggs sometimes, especially when they're younger and haven't been laying long. It's pretty normal.
