Why do the young hens lay eggs without their shells in the bag? (Oksana)

Such a problem, when chickens lay eggs in a soft shell or without a shell at all, is quite common. Almost every second poultry farmer faces it. Especially often it occurs in young layers.

This is due to the fact that the reproductive system of pullets is only being formed, so there may be failures. As a rule, with full and proper feeding and maintenance, this problem goes away after a couple of weeks.

It is quite another matter if such a phenomenon is constantly manifested in adult hens. This may indicate a lack of very important trace elements, in particular, calcium and vitamin D. Excessive salt content in feed can also lead to similar problems, since salt slows down the absorption of calcium. Stress or a violation of the regime can provoke a failure of the reproductive system. In more detail all these aspects are described in our article "Frequent problems of layers - eggs without shell".

In your case, I advise you to observe the bird for a while. If this phenomenon passes, then you should not worry, it is normal for young layers. If after a couple of weeks everything will be repeated again, it is worth reconsidering the diet. Add either special feed additives for egg chickens, or calcium supplements. Pay attention to the quality of drinking water, it should not pass the system of mitigation and cleaning.
