It's one of these :th

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!!!

Bummer.

 

Took me a couple weeks of finding wet spots to catch one eating an egg, when I did she was in the process of taking shell from nest and ran out into the run with it.

I chased her down and got the shell. Which told me it was a thin shelled egg.....but I still don't know who is laying them.

Am actually going to isolate a group 4 birds tonite, one of which I'm pretty sure is the funky egg layer, and might be the bird I caught eating the egg.

 

The eating of an easily broken thin shelled egg is not an egg eating problem IMO...but the thin shelled egg is a problem, can't sell em and they make a mess.

If only one bird has funky eggs, then diet is not the problem, but the funky layer may have a nutrition uptake problem, something that generally can't be fixed.

 

Am just babbling here...sorry, I have no real answers for you as of now.
