My girl(s) have been eating their eggs lately. I'm giving them layer pellets mixed with grower crumbles (Don't want to hurt the rooster). They haven't been eating BOSS as much, but they devour apples and what not. I've noticed that they have been throwing their food all over (new feeding mechanism in the future me thinks). Anywho, I'm just wondering if it is necessary to get them some crushed oyster shells. I have absolutely no problem doing it, I love my girls (and Curly the cockerel), so, naturally I'll do what it takes As a side note, the hen I thought was eating the eggs I separated her from the flock and she wasn't a happy camper, the next day I saw a slime in the coop. I presume either she only laid egg white/yolk or she ate the shell, but I didn't see any evidence of a shell. *sigh* These pullets are confusing! (They're about 6 months old now all of them). Thanks!
