A Shelly Question?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Hope this isn't a stupid question but........once the chick has hatched what happens to the egg shell? I just checked on Jellybean and all is well, but I did not see any broken shell in the nest.....or maybe I just missed it? Or does Mum eat it? :)

a few things can happen, mostly the two egg halves get kicked to the other end of the box. Sometimes the eggs shells get kicked right out of the box and as you asked the mum or dad can eat it. If you have wood shavings in the box it can easily get hidden by that.

Well if Lady has eaten hers it would be a good little calcium supplement I suppose!

I think that is part of the reason they do it. :)

yep i think so too, Freckle kicked hers to the other side of the box and I believe Tootie ate hers as well, although I know I removed one that had sat there for a few days.
