We have two coupes of chickens. One houses our old hens, a mixture of black sex link, barred rock, and a beautiful buff orpington rooster. The other houses our younger americana ladies and their man. Both pens have been quite naughty about egg eating. However the older girls got over their cannibalistic ways when I placed a golf ball or two in their nesting boxes. However, the americanas have been persistent in the egg munching in spite of golf ball placement. The only way to avoid losing all my eggs from them is to be out there every hour to collect. UGH. I have other things to do than to sit and wait on chickens all day, every day. I am ready to butcher the lot and start over entirely! Any suggestions?
