Has anybody had trouble with chickens eating their eggs. I have several different breeds but only my white leghorns are eating the eggs . I want to choke them, It's very upsetting especially when I hear that they are the best layers. what should I do ?? AAAARRRRGGGGGGGHHH!!!!!!

I am beginning to think that the Leghorns that I got may be to inbred. They dont seem as healthy as my other breeds of chickens. I think I will breed the leghorns with the other breeds that i have.
Does anybody out there want to trade an Ancona Rooster for one of my roosters. I have a Leghorn, New Hampshire Red, and a Black Star

A roll away nest box works well for the egg eaters, although many chicken owners cull chickens who eat eggs. Especially ones who refuse to use a nest box and lay eggs on the ground.
