cut out all treats so she eats nothing but layers and oystershell and grit. The grit is to help grind her feed up, the oystershell is to help with the shells.
Staffies are softer than you think.

How old is Miss Speckeldy and how long has she been laying?  Did she have a rest from laying at all in the last few months?

I have a Speckledy that consistantly lays soft shelled eggs.  I finally wised up and realised that she wasn't getting enough of the layer pellets because the other hens shooed her off.  Now I put out several bowls of them in different locations and that seems to help.  Fingers crossed no more soft shelled eggs.
When I die I will slide in sideways, a glass of wine in one hand and chocolate in the other, screaming, "Whooo hooo!  What a ride!" as life is to be enjoyed to the fullest!
