I have two pullets, one of whom I'm trying to break off of laying on the poop board. If I leave it there, she lays there. If I take it out, she lays in the nest. However, I don't want to always have to take it out everyday, and put it back at night. Today I left it back on, and she laid on the poop board. When she left, she knocked over the roost and it cracked the egg. When I got there, it was untouched. I sure didn't want to eat it, and so I gave it to chickens. I gave it raw, because I sure don't want that thing in a pot I use to cook in. They were leery of it--it took quite a bit of scratch to get them to eat it. And they only at the yolk, too. They didn't see the shell when I gave it to them, just the insides, which I didn't scramble. I've heard that as long as they don't crack the eggs, it's okay. It's natural for them to take advantage of a cracked egg. This won't make them egg eaters, will it?
