I was up on the roof of my coop I'm building today and saw my 4 year old come out of the old coop with his shirt pulled up into a sack where he was obviously carrying eggs back into the house. We have a layer flock and then HIS chickens, which are buff orps that are separated. I've been collecting buff Orps to set for customers. I asked him if he collected the eggs from his birds too. He said yeah. I asked him if he separated them. He was frustrated and said, "No Dad, I got them mixed up."So when I went inside I was explaining to him the importance of keeping them separate and he said, "Why are you always taking the eggs from MY chickens?"I told him it was because they were the only pure chicken eggs I have right now." He told me I should get my own!
