I've been having an issue with one of my 6 hens pecking eggs. She's not eating them and doesn't even break the membrane but obviously I want to nip it in the bud before she figures there's something tasty inside. Not certain which hen. My strategy for addressing has been to add a bunch of golf balls to each nest (to hopefully deter pecking) and collect several times per day. This seems to be working--have gone from one pecked egg/day to one every week or so. However, collecting more frequently means I'm sometimes checking under a hen that's laying or just sitting in the nest box to remove eggs before something gets pecked. Any issues with disturbing laying chickens? I feel bad, but, ya know, quit pecking eggs chickies!
