    The only 2 pullets that aren't laying.... ARE EATING MY FRIKKEN EGGS!!! UGH.

    What do I do about this? I went out to check for eggs three times today and sent DH earlier this afternoon. Buckbeak and Minerva were eating Crookshanks egg when DH checked in there, but he didn't know what they were doing.
    I went out an hour later and knew something was up when I saw yolks and shells smeared across their heads. I hunted threw the nesting boxes and found a tiny light blue egg again. Haven't seen one in a week. I think it's Luna's because Crookshanks is mint green and Bellatrix's is khaki (also haven't seen one in days).

    Well people will have ideas-but what I do with egg eaters is re-home/purpose them. They will teach other hens to eat your eggs too. Sorry you are having this problem [​IMG]
