I doubt there's any way of preventing this, but do any of you have hens that simply "drop" an egg while they are walking around or roosting? Is this just a random happening or if a hen does this, is this the way she always does it? I've had an egg eating problem, that I thought I was getting ahead of, but twice we've seen a hen drop an egg onto the ground and the chickens are literally on it within a second. I think I'm getting them to leave the eggs in the nests alone. Any ideas?
