I have a bantam laying soft eggs- anyone any suggestions (I really don't want to cull her)

give plenty of oystershell grit, or if she wont eat it, use egg shells, but first put in hot oven for 20 mins to kill bacteria, no need to do this for shells off hard boiled eggs, crush up shell an give to hens.
