Ok, I have nine chickens and one is laying... don't know who. We got the first one last sunday and my son just found a broken one... broken neatly in half in the coop. Now it was in a corner so we didn't find it, it could have been there for a couple of days. Is it possible that I have an egg eater all ready? and if so how do you find out who? I think I'll get hubby to modify their nesting boxes to roll away, but they haven't even figured out how to use them yet. I hear everyone here saying to cook the egg eater but we've just got started with laying. And how do you identify? Anyways, words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. I did the golf balls in their boxes but I'm a nursing student and my hubby works shifts, I check as regularly as I can but I don't know what to do, I can't sit in the coop 24/7.
