I have a hen laying on some fertile eggs, and today I went to candle them and they are all covered in yolk!! I have been getting the same number of eggs every day, but could they possibly be eating eggs? I'm not sure how they managed to get the yolk on the eggs she was laying on, since the only time she was out of the coop today was when I fed them and they were ALL out of the coop, and once done she went right back in. She is sitting on them on the floor of the coop. That is where she chose to make her nest and I can get her to move, but the other chickens don't mess with her so I don't bother anymore. Anyway...if they are eating eggs, how do I get them to stop?? Is that possible? I accidentally dropped an egg while collecting eggs a week or so ago, and they all devoured it, so I'm afraid they have the taste for eggs now. I'm lucky they didn't eat one of the fertile eggs...at least this time.
