This started a few months ago. The original criminal was an older Turken. I tried to put golf balls in the nest. Next I emptied eggs and filled them with mustard. This worked for about a week. The last step was to isolate those I thought were doing the crime, the older turken hen and a young EE who is on the bottom of the hierchy. This worked well for about 1 week and now I have someone doing it again! I am at my wits end and thinking of starting over with new chicks. I was wanting to have a broody but its hard to pull off when someone is eating the eggs. I always wanted a mixed flock of EE's and Cuckoo Marans and its not exactly working out. I change their water every day They have egg ration pellets in the feeder and I toss scratch and different greens in the pen daily (to include grass). They are well feed I crumble the egg shells up and toss them back in the pen. this is something my granny and great aunt always done. Can someone link a good chicken n dumplings recipe? (I threatened them verbally with this information this morning). Thanks for any and all advice to include recipe!
