I have 23 pullets that just started laying this week. They are laying on the floor of the coop, and just as quickly, they are eating the eggs! HELP! How do I get them to lay in the nest boxes ? (I have 6 older ones that do, so they should have figured it out) How do I get them to stop eating the eggs? This morning i went out every hour to check the eggs. No eggs at 10, and at 11, there were 3 on the floor and all had been eaten. Also, why do my chickens lay eggs at any time of the day? There are never eggs in the morning. They have tons of space to roam, and plenty of food to eat.
