Yo, Hens Jul 12 Stop breaking your eggs before I can pick them up or I’m gonna break your kneecaps. Man, I sound so tough. Comments 6 Comments • Comments Feed Log in to Reply B.

Who’s tough?…and I’m still scratching out a living! Do try more protein, hard fake eggs and softer bedding….quick…before I start eating the eggs too…. PS…..otherwise scrambled eggs…..with barn yard salt and pepper…yummm! PS….Whisper and tell Roo I need to talk to him…ha!

I leave the door open so the hens can go in during the day and lay and the guineas get to the eggs. I’m getting ready to fix me up a nice hot red pepper egg and see if he/she enjoys it as much as they enjoys the other ones. Hopefully one day with a burning beak will break them from this nasty little habit! I’ll let you know if it works.

It’s REALLY hard to get them to stop, especially if you have free range chickens & you’re always hunting for eggs.

I hope this is helpful! If they are laying in your yard, you might have to resort to covering your yard in golf balls ;)… On July 12, 2009 at 8:55 am Log in to Reply Jeanette says: Do you feed them oyster shell? It makes the egg shells harder to break. On July 12, 2009 at 3:12 pm Add Your Thoughts Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
