molting...how long till I get eggs? - Page 3

Oh dang. It can be a learned habit, but can be due to boredom or they need protein or calcium. But usually one does it and figures out its tasty and the rest catch on. There are some creative and probably effective ways to stop it, but the most important thing is to get the eggs out before they have a chance, the longer they do it the more habitual it will be. If you search on here for egg eaters I think several articles and threads will come up.

Also the ones I wormed are doing great, still no eggs but gorgeous feathers and starting to pink up their combs, one more than the other so far.
