    Hi all you Chicken Lovers! I found this site a while back in doing research before getting our four gals - two Rhode Island Reds and two Australorps. We've had them almost two months now and are so attached to them all. Bad news is, one of them has turned out to be an egg-eater. I've separated her, hoping first of all to make sure I've got the right one but more importantly to reform the wayward hen. My limited research is not promising - don't want to cull her if I don't have to. Anyway, it's nice to join a nice bunch like y'all!

    Hopefully someone here will be able to help you with your hen. You may want to start by searching through old threads, I've found a few gems buried in old discussions. [​IMG]

    Maybe you can try something like what is listed here to help solve your egg eater problem https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=231649
    My
    birds aren't laying yet so I have not had this problem, but I read once that hollowing out and egg and filling the empty shell with mustard may work also?!?!?!
