I'm a newbie... got 13 hens June 2nd from a friend. They are all about a year old. One of the three red sexlinks is eating eggs, caught her three times now and I've read the posts about BOSS and oyster shell and I've been doing that since we got them, add it to their scratch AM and PM. So, tonight we caught her and have her in a cage (w/ food and H20) in the hen house. Guess I'll see if it's really her doing the damage. I think she ate 2 eggs today out of my 7. Also, treated her and three others for SLM with Melaleuca Oil and MelaGel. Sigh. Don't know what to do. These aren't pets. I want around a dozen eggs a day and am getting half that. Boo. This site has been VERY helpful! THANK YOU! Joy 2 black sexlinks, 3 red sexlinks, 2 white plymoth rocks, 5 Buffs and one little Japanese something or another.
