A Soft Shelled Egg tells the Story

Yesterday, I caught a hen eating an egg, and started looking at why. Today, I found a soft egg, it was a whole egg, without the shell. Egg shells require a lot of calcium,  so this shows my chickens need more in their diet. So I picked up some oyster shells and grit, and a flock block that's filled with all kinds of goodies for them. 

Hopefully this will stop our egg eating issues.
