停止鸡吃鸡蛋

一种吃鸡蛋的鸡肉通常在鸡蛋中休息时开始行为。她味道吧,说,嘿,这是一顿美餐。她开始在其他鸡蛋啄食,它成为一种习惯,其他母鸡学会通过观看来做到这一点。找到罪魁祸首很容易 - 他们的脸上有鸡蛋。

大卫框架是一个延伸家禽专家犹他州大学。他说最好的事情就是尽快收集鸡蛋并保持喙和脚趾甲修剪。他不建议将人造鸡蛋放在巢中,因为它可以让母鸡育儿。用像芥末一样填充鸡蛋,因为它们对他们无关紧要,因为他们没有我们所做的同样的味道受体。而且,他们会习惯它。

框架说另一个伎俩是分心。

"One thing that might get their mind off of it a little bit is leafy hay that’s hung from the ceiling to allow them to pick at it a little bit. I think it gives them something to do, and it also gives them some vitamins and things that if for some reason they’re lacking a little bit in their nutritional intake, that kind of helps," says Frame.

始终拥有两到三英寸的床上用品,如巢中的松屑,并使巢穴倾斜。

"So that the egg rolls away to the back of the nest and them you can gather them from the back side, and the hens don’t get the chance to get to it anyway. It’s a bad disease, it’s a psychological disease, but it’s something that can be fixed," he says. "If after everything you’ve tried it doesn’t work, you may just consider getting rid of those few hens and getting some new chicks in and starting new where they haven’t learned that behavior."

如果你已经尝试了很多东西来阻止鸡蛋吃,它不会停止,你可能只需要一群新的羊群重新开始。
