My 4 year old son has been in charge of collecting the eggs, a job that he cherishes. We had tried to introduce some younger chickens into the flock, but that hasn't gone well. They are getting heckled so much, they just cower in the coop, taking over the nest boxes. So the big girls are starting to lay on the deep-littered floor of the coop. My son went to get an egg this afternoon and somehow dropped it in the run (I think he was goofing off w/ egg in hand), and the girls ate it! OH NO!!!! There are 11 big chickens and there is not one sign of the broken egg. They ate it all. I do NOT want this to become a habit, so I was wondering if anyone has any advice, tips, info on how to nip this in the bud before it becomes a habit? Thanks so much.
