We have six 11 month old hens in one coop and we had recently had an egg break (I'm guessing) from lack of bedding in the nesting box necause one hen decided she doesnt like hay and kicks it all out...and suddenly ALL of them in that coop are eating every single egg. They are on Purina Layena Pellets (usually the one with oyster and omega 3s added), plus a probiotic mixture with other vitamins and minerals with oyster shells in it (I want to say its called Super Layer pellets? We get it at TSC, small bag around $17?). They get plenty of fresh water and free range for a good 5 hours a day. I usually go to collect eggs 3 times a day but I am either finding nothing or finding them all covered in egg yolk on their faces for about 2 weeks now. I thought I had the two major culprits and isolated them for a day, tried filling fake easter eggs with mustard, and tried "waiting as soon as they lay and collect" method..but that got old fast especially with a toddler around and lots of homework for myself (yay for college degrees and parenting! ) . What else can we do? I am hardly even able to collect the egg from the one who is laying before they are all attacking the egg (like mid drop from chicken!) if I am out there. We have 3 other hens in another coop and have zero issues, same set up and same feed. But now I have six viscious egg eaters in one coop and it's to the point we are ready to make stew and start that flock over. They are eating up our profits over there !
