    In a previous thread I asked about chickens eating their own eggs. Still happening but with less frequency. I live with it. However, of the 3 chickens I have one lays a bluish-white egg while the other 2 lay light brown eggs which are the eggs that get eaten. The white egg never is eaten. I can't figure it out. Can anyone figure this one.
    Another issue re: eggs. About 2-3 eggs were laid without the shell; just the membrane and the eggs were laid on the ground, not in the roosting areas. I can't figure this one out ether.

    There is a good thread in this forum that explains egg issues and what might cause them. Search for it, it's very helpful. I'll post it tomorrow.
    Good luck
