    hello there!

    I went out to my chickens yesterday morning to let the ladies out for the day and normally there will be eggs for me... There were none. I watched them all go out and I know they didn't have a egg with them but something get into my coop and stole eggs which were broken around my garden. I saw three of my four chickens hovering and poking around so I went over and they were all eating an egg.
    Last night I went to check for eggs again and there was one in the beating box but it was pecked into and messy... I have corrected the intruder breach but now have to face correcting this egg eating habit...
    Where do I start? What do I do?
    These are my first chickens and I have only had them for a month do help would be appreciated.
