    I haven't seen eggs from my Cochins for awhile, and sence its cold here in Michigan, I
    expect it. But I opened there breeding pen last night to check and see if everything was
    okay for the night, and found them eating yolk. At that point im thinking, how? there arent
    any eggs!. Then everything clicked into place [​IMG] . Darn it! How do I deal with this? I
    hear egg eaters are a pain in the butt to break.



    Any suggestions? [​IMG]

    There are LOTS of threads on here regading egg eating, with some great ideas. Search for "egg eaters" or "egg eating" and you should find several threads. Good luck!
