No. We are familiar with cannibalism.
We feel as the eggs got bigger the hens have not matured to handle the bigger eggs,
For instance, this morning one chicken was still alive, however, she had just laid an egg and her vent opening was as big as a mans fist and all bloody. No other chickens were picking at her.
What causes the blood all over the egg? It appears this comes from the inside of the chicken not from the outside where other chickens might pick at the exposed tissue.
Will Cod Liver Oil or Fish Oil in their water help?
