For a while one of my girls was not laying any eggs except for several "wind eggs", now she seems to be laying mainly soft eggs. Also one morning I let them out and she fluffed herself up, had a drink and then stood away from the others refusing to eat anything - when I went out later there was an egg with no yolk, only a little white and a shell like jelly, if that can be classed as an egg.I can't be sure it was all her but that is my guess. I have 4 hens, all hybrids.

Grit is just for digestion, to help grind up what she eats. Oyster shell is for calcium. You should have both available for her. She will eat only what she needs of each. Some people also give their hens crushed egg shell for calcium. Hope this helps!

Does soluble grit not contain calcium? I know it's supposed to dissolve in their digestive system and give them some form of nutrition. I think it also contains oyster shell.
