Hello I am new to BYC and to raising chickens in general. One of my girls decided she no longer wants to lay in the nest box. Instead, she made her own nest. Normally I don't mind hunting for eggs but, my other hen breaks and I assume eats the egg. I have heard this is a hard behavior to break. She only destroys the egg that is outside of the nest box. Any ideas? I hate seeing so many eggs wasted.
