    Most people consider it an old wives' tale to feed pepper (black, white or red) to chickens and produce eggs or more eggs..... However you will also find those that subscribe to it.

    Once I heard a possible explanation that the pepper causes the chicken to drink more water. We often underestimate the importance of good clean water to produce nice big and frequent eggs.
