How to prevent chickens from laying soft-shelled eggs?


The eggs laid by the hens are generally hard-shelled, but sometimes some soft-shelled eggs are produced. They do not have a hard outer shell and only have a thicker film covering the inside of the egg. Some are white and some are white. It appears transparent, why is this? How can we prevent chickens from laying soft-shelled eggs?

1. Cause
1. Nutrition
Generally, the hard shell of an egg is mainly formed by calcium. If there is a lack of calcium, an egg shell cannot be formed. A large amount of phosphorus is needed in egg yolk. Phosphorus has a great effect on the formation of eggshells, bones and cells. The lack of calcium and phosphorus directly affects the growth of chickens, and the result is an impact on laying eggs. Calcium and phosphorus need to be balanced. Generally, calcium is twice that of phosphorus. Imbalance affects absorption. Vitamin D is also an important component to enhance calcium and phosphorus absorption. Lack of it will cause egg production to decrease, eggs become smaller, and soft shells appear.
2. Management
The high and low temperature will affect the development of the chicken, and then affect the feeding. Lack of nutrition can cause the eggshell to become thin. Poor ventilation will cause ammonia poisoning and affect calcium absorption. The stocking is too dense, the activity is insufficient, the circulation is not good, and the calcium and phosphorus transportation is not in place. The stress response after being frightened.
3. Diseases
Pullorant enteritis or coccidiosis may result in soft-shelled eggs. The chicken's resistance is reduced, and the resistance is weak, which is also prone to disease.
2. Prevention methods
1. Human adjustment
At present, there are some additives produced for soft-shell eggs on the market, which can help regulate and prevent the occurrence of soft-shell eggs. You can choose regular and appropriate safety additives to help improve. Frequently ventilate, maintain a good air environment, pay attention to heat preservation, pay attention to temperature control, and always keep a suitable 20 to 25 degrees to prevent it. Often rush out to stocking activities to enhance resistance.
2. Supplement nutrition
The daily food can be fed with some food crops that contain more calcium and phosphorus, or it can be supplemented with shell powder, or eggshell powder, bone meal, cod liver oil alone to supplement calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D. It should improve the situation, but you can configure it yourself Concentrated feed with high content increases the absorption and digestibility of feed.
3. Diseases
It is necessary to start prevention and vaccinate when the vaccine is small. If the disease still occurs in adulthood, it should be administered promptly at the beginning of the disease. Generally, penicillin and sulfa drugs are used for treatment. For coccidiosis, use chlorphenidine, mixed feeding at a concentration of 30-33 mg/kg, for 1 to 2 months.
There are many reasons why chickens lay soft-shelled eggs, some are mild, and some are severe. Then we must find the reasons, use the correct method to improve the condition according to the symptoms, adjust well, and switch to normal egg production. If you encounter this situation, I believe you can handle it correctly.
