One of my pullets is eating eggs, how do i go about catching the culprit before the bad habit spreads to the others? I keep finding a small bit of shell with the contents totally gone, this is happening on a regular basis now and i need to nip it in the butt before it gets out of hand. And before anyone suggests that i collect eggs early and all day, i do. This seems to be happening when an egg is layed early in the morning before i let them out. I let the girls out every morning at 7am. How have you folks delt with egg eaters? Hubby said the egg eater should be culled, but i would rather avoid that if possible or if there is another way to stop the egg eating.
