Last night I adopted 6 hens from someone moving across country. So there is no chance of returning them. They're getting along fine with my original group except for one small detail that this lady forgot to mention. They eat eggs. Early this morning the new 6 had laid eggs on the ground so I picked them up and put them in a nesting box so I could finish feeding and watering. When I came back one of my buff orpingtons decided she would plop her plump little butt on them. This is nothing new and she always moves to eat in about a half hour so I just went on with my chores. When I came back one of the eggs was gone and there was yolk all over my nesting box. I asked the original owner and then she decides to tell me that there was a time her hens ate an egg that was still half way in one's bum! The only good part about this is I know it's one of the new ones. Now how the heck do I get them to stop while making sure mine don't get caught up in these shenanigans?
