    Hello, today I found out my 12 week old silkie is eating eggs. I separated her for today but I have a question. I have a new coop of 8 week olds who arnt laying. So if I separate her out to the other coop, by the time they start laying will she of forgot about egg eating? Thanks for any help!

    Get a small nail and poke a hole in the top and bottom of a egg. Blow the yolk out and fill it back up with mustard and put it back in there with her... I broke some Buckeyes like this not long ago!!

    What kind of feed is she getting? How many treats are you feeding? Do you free range at all?
