Wondering if anyone has had a similar experience to mine. We have 7 laying hens, almost a year old now. They've been free-ranging on weekends, and evenings after we get home from work for several months, but about 3 weeks ago we put up a fence around the yard so they could free range all day long. In the past two weeks, we've noticed that the whites of the eggs don't hold together as well in the pan - parts of the white are almost milky looking and kind of seep out and run across the bottom of the pan. It's kind of strange. The only thing I can think is that their diet has a lot more grass in it now - you can see their poop is kind of green and sometimes even has grass in it. Could it be a lack of protein? There aren't all that many bugs around right now compared to earlier in the summer. I thought free-ranging would always be better than commercial feed, but now I don't know what to think. (they still have commercial layer feed in their run, which they do eat, just not as much.) Thanks in advance for any insight.
