Trouble in the Barnyard!

Okay folks....

Not sure how this happened, but I did a whole post and when I pressed publish it was on the wrong blog. I'm not moving it.... so if you want to find out about our egg-eating hen and a rooster I can't get rid of and the good news about my bees, I guess you'll have to go here: http://flowerydivide.blogspot.com/

why would a chicken eat the eggs? Is that common?

well, apparently if you have week shells they start eating the eggs to clean them up. We have one hen that laid several eggs with weak shells... in fact a couple have had no shells at all, just a membrane. So this one hen took a liking to eggs and she was cracking nearly half the eggs and eating a good many. since she is in confinement we have no more trouble. No cracks even.
