The Bossy hens may peck at eggs or chase others away from nest boxes, forcing them to lay elsewhere. Some may get a taste for eggs and start cracking eggs and eating them. “If egg production is decreasing, you may need to consider the possibility of predators consuming the eggs, egg-eating by the hens themselves or egg breakage,” Lavergne says.

By systematically following the above three steps, an apparent egg-quality problem can be quantified and put into perspective. If the incidence of a defect is too high, possible causes and solutions can be pinpointed by consulting the section of this book.
