chicken breaking eggs & eating
chicken breaking layed eggs & eating & messing up boxes. I can only save 1 egg a day, if I'm lucky in timing. I don't know which chicken is doing it - I only have 5, 2 aracana & 2 barred rock & 1 red rooster. I feed crumbled layer meal & chicken scratch and always add oyster shell. They have a great big outdoor pen, 6 layer boxes, 10 x 14 3-sided covered coop and heaps of vegatable & fruit waste, fresh lawn clippings & mulch to scratch around. It really should be heaven for chickens with no predator threat and since I wouldn't eat them they will presumably die of old age. What can I do to stop this behavior?
