    My chickens are eating their own eggs! I'm not sure if it's just the rooster eating them or all of them. What can I do?

    I've heard of putting golf balls in the nesting boxes and they learn that pecking them does nothing! Worth a try!

    My chickens were eating every egg that was layed! So i got vital vitimans the same thing you give

    baby chicks to get them started. You put it in the water every time you change it. And start them on

    chicken scratch if they are not already on it. Instantly within 3 days they stopped completely! For real!

    When water was given to them without they started again. The vitimans are what they need. Follow the

    amount on the package and put it in every container of water. Package is only around $4.00 and its a powder.

    Buy it at the co-op. I now have healthy chickens and cartons of eggs! Alway's Give Thanks!
