I went out to check on my two hens I just created a tractor for yesterday and saw them both eating the smaller pieces of the cedar shavings I had put into a nesting box along with a golf ball for them. I don't know if this is bad for them or not so I took it out of the tractor but now if they want to lay an egg all they have is the damp ground until I figure out what else I can put in there. Is this bad for them? I give them lots to eat more than they ever finish, clean water all the time and lots of varying treats so I don't think it could be hunger. They are also one or both eating the eggs, I haven't gotten one yet. I'm feeling quite flustered and frustrated.
