I have a hen that has discovered how tasty eggs are, so she partakes. Will this continue? Is there something I can do to stop this? Judging by her vent, she is a good layer....still, she eats eggs! Her one egg a day doesn't make up for the damage she has/will cause. They roam free daily. I offer higher protein crumbles. I scatter scratch. There is grit available. They get table scraps. I mix Kickin' Chicken with their food. I mix in some calf manna with the crumbles. I can't imagine that it's a nutritional issue. I wanted my broodiest hen to set, so I have left eggs for the last 2 days. This morning there were 12 eggs. I went to check on the nest and I found a hen eating an egg. This isn't the first time I found broken eggs. I just wasn't able to catch the culprit until today. She made such a mess of the nest, that I will need to start over. Is this a cull'able' offense? They aren't pets, but we raised these chickens on our laps practically. These were our very first chicks. With that said, I feed them and give them a happy life...so my family has fresh eggs. It has been a mutually beneficial relationship. I don't have room for an egg eater. She may have to go live at a petting zoo! Advice is welcome! Thanks so much.
