Consistent soft shelled or thin shelled eggs.

Recommended Posts

Molly keeps laying soft shelled eggs and when she is not laying softies she lays eggs with quite thin shells.

She never appears like a typical softie layer. In fact, the other night she popped out after going to bed, plopped out the egg in the run and then went back to bed.

She is 5 now. I want to help her.

She has been having Agrivite Enhance Feather, Shell and Bone but you are only meant to give them this for a week and then once a week thereafter.

The week is over so in-between I have given her the usual Life Guard tonic.

Tonight she laid another softie.

They have Garvo layers pellets.

What else can I do for her ?

I don’t know Luvachicken but I have one who is similar. She will occasionally lay an egg with a decent shell, but most of the time the shells are very thin and really sort of chalky on the outside - like she misses an outer layer, and I suppose about a quarter of the time she doesn’t manage a shell at all.

In all other respects she’s very healthy (she’s the hen who survived being mauled by the dog).

I haven’t noticed any correlation between type of egg and any of the various supplements / feeds I’ve tried.
