    Ok I think my hen gets mad at me.... Does anyone know why she pecks a hole in the little end of her egg ?? I would say out of 5 or so eggs a week she lays she pecks about 4, doesn't eat them or break them open just a little peck hole.... it's like she's saying ha ha now you can't have it.... Does anyone know why , and what can I do to stop it ???? THANKS !!!!

    Other than figuring out what time she lays and then removing the egg immediatly I really do not know. I have never had an issue like that. Good Luck!

    Maybe she's just an evil chicken [​IMG] I bet she's sitting in the coop right now plotting out her next plans and going "muahahahaha" with all the others sitting in the corner as far away as possible.

    put some old golf balls in there for her to play with. She cant' break those.

    make sure that she is getting enough oyster shell.

    Uh oh. Picking at her egg(s)? Egg eating may be right around the corner. Better do some research on it.
