Rir broken eggs

Wondering does anyone know why my hens keep laying soft eggs but shells are almost strong enough to hold the egg. Feeding organic layers pellets and lots of oyster shells.one of my four lay a solid formed egg.Any help welcome.

1 of my hens had the same problem a few year ago and I bought a bag of sand and dumped it out beside their house it worked for me but I'm not an expert
