Thanks so much for the chicken help. The mustard shell sounds promising. I put wooden eggs in their nest boxes, helped for awhile but they’re back at it. I also have a broody hen. Since it’s the wooden eggs she sits on, I leave her. I do have a wire dog crate for an isolation spot. I also have a heated base and metal drinker but never got around to setting it up. Maybe this winter I’ll use it, especially if it’s as bad as I’ve read it to be. The joys of New England!
thanks again for your help.
