Stop Chickens from Eating Eggs

Is your hen eating eggs? Once a hen starts eating eggs, it can be a difficult and possibly impossible dilemma to unplug.

There are a few reasons why a hen might start eating eggs. The first and probably most likely reason is accidental discovery.

An egg can break at any time, and a hen may begin to eat it and develop a taste for eggs.

Stress can be another reason. Stressed chickens tend to pluck and peck more, including the feathers and eggs.
