    I was out next to the run a while ago and happened to see my 17 week old Barred rock squeeze a shelless egg out and the other 5 chickens jumped on it like crazy. They don't ever get that excited over anything else. They don't seem to bother the normal shelled eggs in the nesting boxes or even when they lay a shelled egg in the run, am I the only one with such bloodthirsty chicken.
