    Ok, It's not an emergency... the damage is done. up until today, I have been having issues with eggs being broken open and pecked at, making them unusable. Today, I discovered Blanche, my leghorn, killing and eating chicks that were hatched today. She is the culprit. Should I kill and eat her? It would make sense... The problem is not going away. I can't keep her in the coop forever cause she'll just keeping killing chicks and eating eggs. Is this a rational decision? Thoughts?

    Sounds fair! I wouldn't let her keep killing birds and eating eggs.
