What to do? Chicken is eating eggs
I have just recently been finding some eggs pecked with holes in them and a few times the whole egg was eaten. I could tell because there was some sticky egg on another egg not touched.
I am thinking I will cull the bird but I have six and dont know what one is doing it yet. I am going to have to sit out there all morning until each one lays and see which is doing it. It is now happening everyday. Instead of five or six eggs I am getting two or three at the most. Half the time she does not eat the whole thing but seems to peck a whole in it the size of a nickel.
They have plenty of egg layer pellets, free range weeds and garden grass, hen scratch and oyster shells all available to them all day with fresh water each day. Many time they get fruit fallen from the trees and pasta when My kids dont eat all of the pasta.
Is there any cure or just cull the problem hen? Thanks Bill
