The majority of animals that lay soft eggs on land are reptiles.These animals are usually snakes, turtles, and lizards.
Yes; platypuses lay soft, leathery eggs rather than hard-shelled eggs.
There are a few reasons this can happen. As a hen ages out, and gets older she can stop producing good shell quality and cannot utilize the calcium she eats. She will still pr…oduce eggs but the shells can be soft and rubbery. Poor nutrition is another reason hens will produce rubbery egg shells. This is easily remedied by the addition of high calcium foods and ground bone/oyster meal into their diet.
Yes, amphibians eggs have no outer coating, although they have a jelly like casing which can protect it.
Often as a hen first starts to lay, eggs may have soft shells until her body gets the gist of things. Shock can also cause a hen to lay an odd soft shelled egg. Although with …this in mind, a hen which often lays soft shelled eggs is a cause for concern and veterinary advice must be sought immediately.
Soft-shelled eggs indicate a lack of calcium in the hen's diet. Feed more oyster shell or finely-crushed, dry eggshells.
Give them calcium supplement.

Yes. makeup is great. it keeps u dirty
This is often a problem with calcium intake or utilization. Hens that do not get fed enough calcium in the diet fail to produce well formed eggs. Laying a soft shell or "rubbe…r" egg is common. Soft shell eggs are also possible from pullets just coming into egg production (oviduct training or test eggs). Older hens just finishing their egg laying life and utilizing the available calcium for bone maintenance will often lay a soft shelled egg. if the chicken doesn't have enough calcium in their diet then the egg is therefore at a lack of calcium as well (soft shelled)
They lay soft eggs because they aren't getting enough nutrients intheir diet. (More food.) Our littlest duck laid a soft egg, becauseshe got pushed around at the food bowl. I …suggest Dumor feeds, theyseem to do the trick for chickens and ducks. You can hand feed themto fix this, or put out several food bowls so she can have a chanceto eat.
1) so they don't sink to the bottom of the pond,lake,river eg. and 2) they are less easy to break if they got hit by another animal! date edited 14/05/11 time 10:06 and 37 mi…lliseconds
