    I have a pair of Seramas that are like 7ish months old. My little roo has started trying to get busy with his lady so I have been inconspiculously keeping an eye on them for any signs of egg laying....I can't wait to hatch some! So the one day that I am out of town she lays her very first ever egg!

    AND SHE ATE IT!!!! [​IMG] <<-- replace the little blue guy with a little yellow Serama

    Haven't seen an egg since and I have been really really watching her for it. Hope this isn't going to be a trend.

    I'd give her away to a little kid as a pet and get a new hen if it doesn't quit. Mine are all young still and not laying but if that happens boy will I be MAD.
     
  5. I have a RSL that did the same thing. I watched her like a hawk. got to the eggs first for awhile. That was a year ago, and she has never done it again. maybe I was just lucky? but perserverance paid off.

    I had one of my BOs eat a couple eggs when they were starting out but it went away after a week. Probably because that's when I started free-ranging them and the hens had better things to do than to play in the boxes all day
