I have a pecker. At least one that I know of, anyone who keeps chickens has had a pecker too. It is so maddening. My advice to people with peckers is simple. Identify the guilty party and remove them from the flock before they teach their bad habits to others. My advice is easier to give than take however. First of all, I’m rarely home with enough free time to sit for hours on end waiting for a hen to peck an egg. Secondly, I love them all. A lot. The crock pot is not an option and I’m not going to give a pecker to a friend nor an I going to sell her knowing she may well go into a foreign crock pot. Le sigh.
So I guess I am stuck.
