There is a scrub jay pecking holes in our chicken eggs in the coop. Our chickens spend their days generally in the run, scratching around... and almost daily the scrub jay flies into the coop and pecks holes in the eggs, eating the yolks. We have two chickens (black barred rocks and Rhode Island red), and they lay eggs at various times throughout the day. For awhile I thought that one of the chickens was the culprit. We supplemented their food with calcium, protein, put ceramic eggs in the coop, but still found pecked eggs. Then I saw the scrub jay fly up into the coop- I ran in and opened the back to chase it out, to find pecked eggs. I have seen it several times since through the window, flying in and then out with yolk on its beak. I don’t know how to keep it away!! Obviously we want our eggs. But it’s also concerning because one of our girls tends to get broody and will go sit on broken eggs (getting her bottom very messy) before I have a chance to remove them. We pull the eggs out as often as we can, but it’s like the scrub jay has a sense of when we are not there and when there are eggs. I also don’t want to just lock the chickens out of the coop... Any advice on deterring pesky scrub jays or experience with egg-eating birds is GREATLY appreciated!!
