    I have a young Polish bantam hen she has started pecking and eating other hens eggs. Any ideas on how to get her to stop or why she would do this she mostly enjoys silkie eggs.

    Quote:Either get rollaway nests or you could try draining and refilling an egg with liquid soap and planting it for her to eat.
