    We have 4 hens in one coop. They have apparently not been laying in the past couple of weeks.

    We discovered today that there was an egg in the egg box. My friend went to get some stale bread to feed the chickens. When he came back to get the egg, the hens were all eating the egg that was just laid.


    What can I do?
