    Chicken slitting on eggs and eating them

    Hello, This is my first time raising chickens... A few days ago, the hen laid 11 eggs. After 7 days, I found only 6 eggs and the egg shells. I think the hen is eating her eggs while she is incubating. What is the solution? Thank!

    What in the world is on my egg?

    My girls are out on 1 acre pasture for the summer. Found this egg in my horse hay, definitely laid today by my Midnight Majesty Marans. Hen is just over 1 yo, has been laying since last fall. Have yet to see anything like it. The weirdness is question is not attached to the egg.

    Serial Perch Bomber - Any Suggestions?

    I have a 6 year old hen who seems to be making a habit out of perch bombing her eggs this year. Three have bit the dust so far. She's never had a perch bomb other than her first year laying, so I'm not sure why she has decided to go rogue now. - She has a grass privacy screen up against one...

    Half dark half light

    I have an egg that’s half and half. When I move it a small amount moves. Like fluid the size of my pinky but the black blob is almost stuck. Is this a dud?

    (EMERGENCY) Hen with broken egg inside body

    I noticed she was lethargic and had a penguin stance. When I picked her up I immediately saw clear egg yolk-mucus goop out of her vent, which looked enlarged. She was quickly declining so I soaked her in epsom salt and tried to feel around for an egg with a lubricated gloved finger. I couldn't...

    Hey guys!! My girls started laying and this is the first year for some!! I purchased a couple olive eggers last year. And I think one ended up laying blue eggs. I heard somewhere that the earlobes of your chicken can help dictate what color egg they lay (is this true?) Here is the color...
