Remember you can create different problems by giving too much calcium. Leave it a couple of days before you put lime in their pellets......it might sort itself. Soft eggs can be caused by other things such as emotional upset ::) or just getting out of laying synch with the darker nights. :)

Will 'hold fire' on the suppliments as it does seem a lot of girls are affected by the changing weather, darker nights etc. Ours do get through loads of baked eggshells so are probably getting enough natural calcium at the moment. I would have been more concerned if they were all laying softies but the other eggs have titanium casings! :) These 'home growns' have been the first eggs I've ever boiled that haven't 'cracked' in the water when first placed in. Clever girlies :)
