    My dog loves to play with the chickens. She is just wonderful with them. However I have seen her playing with an egg here or there so that means she is going into the coop. I don't think any of my chickens are laying anywhere else. She never breaks them (as far as I know) and I think she may have buried a few. Has this happened to anyone else and is there a way to break this? It is kind of cute when she brings me an egg though.

    We had a problem with one of our dogs eating eggs. We made chicken-sized doors into the coops so that he couldn't get in.

    My dog ate my eggs I just kicked him out every time he went in the coop and he eventually stopped.

    My dog waits for the eggs to roll out into the egg catchers on my quail pen. I had to put a flap over it.
