Yolk in the pooh tray

Recommended Posts

Any advice - had chooks 3 weeks, had an egg for the first time Thursday and another yesterday - then today I decide to give them a good clean out lunchtime and find egg yolk (just a little & no evidence of shell or white) in the pooh tray.


Do you think this is just them starting to lay, or have I got an egg eater before they have really started!


Advice greatly recieved.

They often lay soft shelled or shell less eggs when they are just getting started - hopefully it will settle down. Maybe whoever layed it was "caught short" and couldnt get to the nest box in time. I'd just keep a check to see if there are any more signs of eating before you get too worried.
