    I have six young hens, and they were all laying nice eggs until last week. Now nearly every day there is one egg that has a very flimsy shell. They have ample oyster shells. The other eggs are great. Any idea why?[​IMG]

    some hens just lay a thinner shelled egg did you have a scare in their yard lately? a scare can change the way they feel like laying eggs
