For the last two days, over HALF my eggs have been cracked! This is extremely annoying because we can't give away or sell cracked eggs, and as long as there's just a couple it's okay -- we just eat them. We get a dozen eggs a day, though, and can't keep up. I think what happened is someone laid an egg from the roost or the top of the nest boxes and it broke. Then a certain hen (cough cough Betty Ford) realized that they're pretty tasty, so now she looks for eggs and pecks them. She doesn't eat them, just pecks them. That plus the fact that they scratch the straw away from the nest box and stand up to lay: bang! Several eggs are dented on their pointy end. I'm going to get some of those excelsior pads to soften the landing, but I don't know what to do about Betty. My shells aren't thin at all -- the girls go through tons of oyster shell and I can barely crack them. ARGGH!! I just needed to vent. I don't think I can modify the hen house to make a rollaway egg tray anytime soon. This happen to anyone else? What did you do about it?
