I am new to the ''Chicken Business,'' and I need to know will they eat the eggs? I have went to gather the eggs one day and they're was sticky stuff around them and on some. At first I thought they were craping on them, but then the other day I saw a broken egg and the egg yolk. Are they craking them or are they breaking when the are layed? I mean they have lots of padding (hay) but... I don't know if they are eating them or not. What can i do to stop it if they are? Thanks.
