    Okay, to try to figure out who of my EEs were eating eggs, I moved half the EEs to another pen.

    Then, I got eggs. So, I figured it was the other group. Swapped them out.

    Then, I got eggs from both groups. Now, I'm confused.[​IMG] What did I do? [​IMG]

    I'm getting 2 eggs from a pen with 3 laying EEs and 1 to 2 eggs from a pen with 2 laying EEs. I was getting 0 to 1 eggs when they were together and found a bunch of shells in the litter.

    Sigh. [​IMG]
