    I went out this morning to see if there were any eggs. There was one and I left it. I came back about an hour later and there was a wet spot. One of the chickens ate the egg!?!? Why did this happen?

    I dusted them with DE yesterday (the 2nd and last time) for lice. Would that upset them enough to do that?

    I am so confused. :)
