We got eight older hens a couple of months ago. As far as I can tell, they aren't all necessarily laying, but at least six are at this point. Last week I found a yolk in the coop. It almost looked soft boiled. I assumed that the hens had eaten the shell but for some reason left the yolk. Didn't think anything of it. Then, today, I'm wading through hens, trying to get out of the enclosure without stepping on anyone and I here a plopping sound. Suddenly, everyone grouped around a hen and started pecking at the ground. She had layed a yolk without a shell right there and everyone was eating it. Any ideas? I looked around the forum but could only find threads that brought up similar things but not quite the same.
