It's the first I've found. It's been hot here, so for the past couple weeks, all doors and windows have been closed up and AC has been on. I'd check the coop fist thing, and when I get home from work. Nothing. However this morning I had the windows and doors open, and heard the egg song.. I quickly ran out to the coop, and seen one of my RIR's squatting in the middle of the run. The other gals were all around her. As I opened the door, she got up and there's a small egg. But the other hens immediately began pecking at it. I managed to get it before they broke it. So I'm thinking this might not be her first if the others are eating them. I've had fake eggs in the nest boxes for a week or so. Will she eventually lay in the boxes? How do I keep the other from eating the eggs, if they are?
