Hello everyone! I think there are some changes in my egg-eating behavior...I have young pullets that have just started to lay...one RIR is laying consistently now for 3 weeks! But everyone else is very slow to catch up. Two days ago I walked outside JUST as a Buff Orp was gobbling up what was left of an egg!! I think she learned it from another hen, who I've isolated from the flock. Aside from those two, I have two Ameraucanas that are breaking their soft eggs...I know because it would have been my first GREEN egg!! So now I don't know what's going on...someone tells me egg breaking is normal for young pullets who are laying very soft eggs (the shells I've found are definitely soft). One Ameraucana leaves her yolks everywhere...the other one gobbles them up. Is there a difference between egg breaking and egg eating? Is it from the same thing? What else can I do to stop it - and will it go away? In my set up, the girls have everything, btw. They get treats other than their layer feed almost every day. They free range in the evenings in the backyard at least every other day. They have oyster shells and grit available at all times. Always fresh water too, and a spacious run. UGH, I don't know what's going on! Please help. I've done the mustard egg thing and it only half works. (most of the girls leave the mustard alone, sometimes they'll eat the shell around it without too much mustard on it.) I'd be open to absolutely any suggestions!! THANKS in advance!
