Does anyone have a suggestion for finding an egg eater in the flock?
Comment by Steve L at noon on Friday, June 22nd, 2012
Steve --- I can't speak directly to the issue, but might recommend first checking to make sure all's well in the laying department. Occasionally, I've though we had an egg eater, only to discover that someone was laying thin-shelled eggs that were getting crushed in the nest. Once I fixed that problem, the "egg eater" vanished.
