I tried using the search and could not get any info. I am sure it is me-duh-anyway, We just brought home two adult chickens yesterday bought form a nice byc-er and today one of the chickens had apparently broken her egg. We did not see her do it. Was this a mistake and do they sometimes break on accident when they are laid? Our nest boxes have lots of soft hay in them. Or is it likely that she did this herself and wanted to eat her egg? If that is the case, how do we stop that? We were checking all morning to get the eggs as soon as they were laid. She seemed to lay late morning or right about noon. I do have a call out to the lady we got them from. Have not yet heard back from her. Since we only have two chickens those eggs are valuable to us. Of course we love the hens no matter what.
