Hi... I have a backyard flock whom I love like pets. We usually get from 7-9 eggs a day. Recently, we have only been getting 1-3. One day I opened the door on the coop and saw all the hens gathered around an egg eating it. I ran in and put a rock on top of it so they couldn't finish it. This has been going on for 2 weeks now. We have tried fake eggs, filling the eggs with mustard, and everything. Nothing will phase them! My mother says if we don't get eggs soon, that she will shoot them all- and she's serious. What else can be done so my babies don't have to die???
