I have a suspicion that my horse has been eating some of the eggs my hens lay. Has anyone else ever had this happen? I have a barn that has a trough on the wall, for feeding the horse hay, but I dont use it and have it filled with shavings since the hens LOVE to lay eggs in it. (my horse is pastured and doesnt need hay, and when she gets hay or treats, she is fed from the ground only) Anyhow, she has recently decided to come in and eat the shavings! And since doing this, I have been getting fewer and fewer eggs. I know its winter, and production has slowed waaaaayyy down, but I am still wondering...could my horse be eating the eggs? Will horses eat raw eggs in the shell, or could I simply have an egg eater (hen)?
