    Its 3rd time today.. I found a broken thin rubbery shell and all egg material just under the perch..i know which chicken had did that...what might be the problem..?? She have eggshell and oystershell whenever she needs..and why does the egg slip off when he is on perch..?

    I guess the calcium didnt coveres the egg and she poops out the egg material..just a guess

    It doesn't 'feel' like a hard shelled egg so they don't seek out a nest to lay.

    How old is the bird, and what are you feeding?
