how to tell which chicken is eating eggs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My chickens have recently started eating their eggs. I have researched on how to resolve the problem, but i need to know which chickens are actually doing the eating. Is there a way i can tell who is eating them?

Sometimes they will have a bit of crusty egg yolk on their face, otherwise you really need to sit quietly and watch and hope to catch her.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Might be best to find out why they are eating them.

 

Tell us more about your flock, coop and feeding regime.

 

One way I read about was to roll a fake egg onto the ground amongst the whole flock,

the one who goes at the egg the hardest maybe your culprit.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
