    I have two pairs of sebs which are a year old. My girls keep eating eggs before I can collect them. They eat my hen eggs too. They get a mix of flock finisher and layer. I even filled store bought eggs with plaster and they ate those halfway through. Then occasionally they'll "play house" and sit on their half eaten dummy eggs for an hour or more and carefully cover them when they leave. I think one girl is more of the culprit, should I seperate them? Any other ideas? Unfortunatly I'm gone 12 hours each day so I can't always be there to collect eggs right after they are laid.
