A couple of the chickens I inherited are eating paint off the bottom edge of the clapboards on my garage. I don't know if it is lead based paint under the new paint. The garage was built in the 50's. I imagine they are looking for bugs but they are stripping the paint clean. I wonder if the paint is effecting the eggs they lay? Some of the eggs have a whiter hue than others. Does anyone know if there is a danger in eating the eggs?
