Poultry > Youth & 4-H
This is in regards to the chicken that has been laying eggs with no shells. She has oyster shell available. Does that rule out lack of calcium?
In response to your question. A hen that continually lays eggs with no shells usually has a anatomical or physiological problem. Even though you give her enough calcium in the feed and supplement with oyster shell, she will still lay eggs without shells. There is nothing that really can be done. Although, she may lay some with shells for a period of time.
