    I have a Question. I found a cracked egg in the coop this mourning and laid it outside so i could clean. Well the chickens got to it. Now i am worried the chickens will start eating their eggs!!![​IMG] Has this happened to anyone, if so did the chickens start eating there own eggs?!!!

    Chances are this will not affect your chickens! I have many times broken or cracked an egg while gathering, and when that happens, I lean down, break it open further and drop it on the ground. The chickens swoop in to fight over this treat of all treats, yet in years of doing this, I haven't had a single bird break open and eat eggs from the nest box.
