    We ended up adopting a convicted egg eater because we thought we were going to eat her... but after a few days in our rehabilitation center (haha), it appears as though she is cured!

    Do you think a move to a new farm cured her? We aren't missing eggs as far as I can tell (we are getting about 2 doz from 28 hens per day).

    Yes I think they can cured. Though I can't cure mine. But she only eats her egg. It's weird. I figured she would eat all she could but she won't so u don't know. I would say just watch her and if she starts back try to break her if you want to keep her.
