Causes of thin-shelled chicken eggs
up our duo of two-year old Golden Comets, it quickly became clear
that our guess was right --- one was laying daily and the other was
either not laying at all or was laying shell-less eggs that she crushed
and consumed. I'm guessing in favor of the thin-shelled eggs
based on having seen one or two eggs with papery shells in that tractor
over the last few months.
Unfortunately, it looks
like our problem hen is going to have to go. I'll give her a week
of R&R just on the off chance she needed a break, then she'll fill
We like having a spare homemade chicken waterer on hand so that we can separate a troubled bird from the flock and still let her drink clean water.
