I have a hen that lays eggs and they look like this: I am sure they are not egg eaters..yet..because the membrane is in tact. Only one chicken does this. I think the egg hits the plywood in the nest box and breaks. I have put a lot of hay in the boxes. Twice the amount I usually put in and still she kicks the hay around until the nest box is bare on the bottom. I have given them extra calcium so I know it's not that. Is there some sort of pad or something people use to keep the eggs from breaking? I am at a loss. I have no idea what to do. I just hate to throw away eggs. It's becoming a daily thing with her. I am not sure if it's the buff orpington or the jersey giant. Question 2. I have two silkie hens that lay eggs on the floor. Is there a way to get them to lay them in the nest boxes? They don't seem to fly or perch. Is this normal?
