    Oh boy. we have had a lot of threads on that one. Yes, they eat it all. I would find damp straw and yolk on other eggs. and I even caught her yellow beaked. But she doesn't eat her own.
    Try doing a search on egg eating. then look up Opa's thread on the 'rolling egg' box. It is on a tilt so the eggs roll into a safe place.

    I will look for some of my posts and put them her for you. I'll be back so it will take a bit. look back at this for added info, okay?
