So one of my older chickens laid an egg in the newest crops coop last night before dusk, I left in the smaller chicks coop hoping this will teach them, I have glass eggs in the coop as sort of training, everyone had been telling me my chicks probably aren't laying due to heat out here in Texas, but the large 3 I still have are laying. This morning in the AM when I went to let them out the older chicks egg is gone and the two glass are still there????? It rained the passed weekend, and everything seems normal. I left the older chickens egg in their coop thinking this will aid in them laying, the egg is gone this morning and I am simply left to believe they ate it. My coop has two doors that remain locked, a open area in the top front of their coop for air, its closed with hardware wire, could they seriously be eating their own eggs? Jeez I feel so stupid if thats true, I've been giving them plenty of water, letting them out of the coop very early, they put themselves up about dusk. What the heck I am feeding chickens who are eating their own eggs? HELP!! Do I quit and start over? 8 months of this and I've gotten nothing!
