Chicken and dumplings may be the best way to use our unfaithful hens

Its back to the ol’ drawin board with our chickens. They are still eating nearly all of their eggs, in spite of the new nests we built, golf balls place around the floor, and everything else we have done. Today we built more nests and covered the places on the floor where they have been laying eggs. I have no idea if it will work or not. I am losing hope for ever getting these crazy chickens to stop eating their own eggs. I think they would look very nice in some dumplings, or maybe chicken soup. Its discouraging to say the least. We have many hours and probably more than $1000 invested in them now. We still get a few eggs but we get only 2 or 3 per day on the average, instead of the 20 or 30 we should be getting. I am tired of buying food for the unfaithful chickens. I told my wife lets let them eat eggs and nothing else until they are sick of eggs. It might just work, Hmmmmm. Well at least the weather is good. We have a super weekend here. Its hot and humid, but at least better than the flash flooding we have been experiencing lately. Ok, gonna go check the henhouse for eggs. Everyone have a wonderful weekend!
