    Blue Jays... a bird that is so smart as to find his way into the nesting coop under a netting across the door.... the netting we put up when we discovered the Blue Jay was going in and eating entire eggs... then would leave all the hens screaming and running for the lives.. . We kept our free roaming hens in their coop today with the door closed and got 8 eggs... instead of 2 broken ones. What else deters Blue Jays from going into the coop?::confused:

    Wow. I would have never thought this would happen! I don't suppose you can get a cat? I'd have trouble too since mine pretty much free range all day every day. Maybe on days that you can quickly get your eggs out, you could replace them with golf balls and the Blue Jays will get discouraged and stop this habit?
