For months now we have had a Rhode Island Red chicken eating eggs. UNACCEPTABLE! I have chickens so I can eat the eggs.
I promptly Googled how to stop chickens from eating eggs. One recommendation was to fill an empty egg with mustard. I did it and it worked….for a while.
Another was to place a golf ball in the nest box. Tried that, too.
We even tried using the trail cam and critter cam to catch the guilty party.
Nada. Nuthin’. Bupkiss. Goose egg (haha).
This method will work for longer than “a while”. Done negotiating with chickens.
