Why are my hens eating their own eggs?! It was two this morning, and another this afternoon. I think I caught the perpetrator (one of my RIR's, she also pecks at you when you go in the coop) and she is now in Isolation. I have searched the forums and am looking for Concrete advise on what to do. Put her down, fill a shell with mustard, soap the eggs, put fake eggs in the boxes.....I've seen it all.
