Wish Me Luck

The chicken eggs are disappearing. It should not be snakes eating them this time of year. The weather has been unseasonably warm, but we still do not see any sign of snakes in the hen house. It can only be the chickens themselves eating their own eggs or the roosters eating the eggs. Reading material on chickens only suggests identifying the egg eating chickens and killing them. I Don't Think So!

This morning I found the greatest suggestion. Blow out a few eggs and fill them with a paste filled with tobasco, red pepper, black pepper, etc. Place those refilled eggs in the nest and once tasted by the egg eating chickens, it should end their desire for eggs. I've got the eggs loaded are ready to take to the hen house. I will be reporting back.

Meanwhile, I found a couple of neat sites with chicken stories.
Take a look when you have time.
