As you know, the New Hampshire Ladies are laying now, but one of our ladies has been laying very thin-shelled eggs. So thin, that when she lays them, they often get cracked on their way out, or as the hen steps out of the roosting bin to mingle with her friends.
We have tried putting crushed oyster shells in there and have been doing that every other day for about two weeks. Should we do this more often? Does that even work?
What have you all done to help with issues like this?
Granted, they are fairly young hens. From what I hear, thin shells are fairly common to new layers.
What are your thoughts?
