Great Pyr. is getting to hen egss before we do.

Is there anything I can coat eggs with to discourage her from eating eggs?

If it were my dog, I'd make it so he doesn't have access to the eggs rather than put something on them that could taint the flavor of the eggs.

You've gotten some good info here on this duplicate thread:

I agree with the suggestions that you confine your birds to the coop to re-train them to lay in the coop,

where hopefully the dog can't get to them.

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!!!
