This is my first little flock. Eleanor is the first to lay, she started on Monday. I went out today and three of my four were in the hen house. They all came out and I threw down some scratch to occupy them while I checked things out. It looks like she laid an egg that broke during the process, thin shell material. The girls had definitely been in there getting a taste. It couldn't have been too long, its 10am here. I cleaned all the wet shavings etc out of the box & laid down new chips. It seems like most of the egg contents were still there, just a little scrambled. Are all my girls going to be egg eaters now?! What can I do to prevent this?
