Those Feathered Egg Eaters...
My chickens are very very bad girls!
After days of increased egg sucking I had decided to kill the batch.
Luckily my dad called me on Mother's day and gave wise advise.
Two days ago I filed the beaks until they bled. That will teach them!
I built a cover above the nesting boxes in an effort to shield the area.
The results are astronomical. 20 eggs in two days! Just one cracked.
Slightly more mild hens.
For now the chickens live.
