Not sure if you’re actually asking a question seriously, but if you are, I grew up on a smallholding with lots o’ hens and ducks.
Soft shells are usually just part of the laying cycle for either a very young hen just getting used to laying eggs, or very old hen at the end of egg production, but it can also be due to a move and new environment, or stress from a predator in the area over a period of time.

If none of those apply it could be diet related, and you can get calcium additives to put into the feed. Often, though, especially if young or recently moved, they’ll gradually rectify to a standard eggs, though you’ll likely get a few long or oddly shaped ones whilst the shell starts to form properly.

Thanks Mimi. It wasn't particularly serious as they're all young and we've bought a different mash which they don't seem to like so they might not have been eating enough (we're adding more than half the original mash again along with some pellets and they're demolishing the combination).

Today has seen 3 normal eggs again, which is good because ew.

Yeah, they’re a bit odd to handle, aren’t they? We had a funny (probably local) name for them when I was young, but I can’t renenber what it was!

I didn’t think I could possibly care less than I do about the Harry royal wedding, but it turns out that there is a whole level of caring less, and that is what I feel about the pages of news stories on the BBC news website as to whether his fiancées dad is going to the wedding.

Just bizarre.

Time to pre-emptively mute a few keywords on Twitter I guess as well.

Do you really follow anyone who’s likely to be tweeting about it, though?

It's sad that the fucking press attention has stopped an apparently shy and reclusive man from going to his daughter's wedding though. Fucking vultures.

The photos he apparently paid for to be taken of him?

The whole thing. From start to finish, the whole industry is like a swarm of locusts that descend on anything or anybody until they're picked clean. Must be even worse when it's not because of something that you've done, but someone related to you.

Yeah. I think it's fair enough that Megan gets press attention - she would have know it was part of the deal and she'll be used to it anyway, what with being a famous and everything.

But her dad isn't doing anything by choice, poor fucker.

Apart from agreeing to stage the photos that were sold.

It's pretty easy to think that comes at the end of a pile of pressure, though, and that they had to offer to pay in order to get anything from him. And he then, foolishly, thought that would be it.

It's like when Woman's Weekly kept hounding me for a scoop on Compo's weekend drug binges.

Still, £15 is £15. I have no regrets.

Fucking Xerox have literal errors in their drivers, the dumb fucks. Windows apparently ignores them but Linux spits the dummy out so hard it goes through the wall and kills a passing schoolchild.

I can’t believe that Special Branch haven’t briefed the whole Merkel family, as far second cousins, twice removed, about not having anything to do with the press in any shape or form, for the rest of their lives.
