I'm not a breeder but I would like to check that she has access to calcium (perches, cuttlefish, etc.). Lacking calcium can cause the egg shells to be softer.

I'm sure a breeder will give you a better answer.

If I were you I would look at the nest box.

I.E : How deep is the box ? Are you providing the Female with a climbing post or is she jumping to get out of the nest ? (This could also hurt the young , "spread legs"
Is she skittish when you go near her ? (Flys into the box when you get near or flys out of the box when you get near)
Have you got enough nesting material inside the box ? The wooden box is hard and if she goes in she may push the eggs against the sides or the floor .


Hope this helps
Regards
Robert
