    My chickens have had a bad habit. It just started. They have started eating their eggs. How can I stop this bad habit?[​IMG]

    If you search here on BYC for "egg eating" you will see there are many possible reasons why they are eating the eggs and how to stop them.
    What are you feeding your chickens, what type of coop/run/free range set up do you have? Do you provide oyster shell to your layers?
