Almost everyday, I find in the nesting box, a egg that has been broken, so you think one of my hens are eating it, or broke it, sitting, etc. what, is hen is eating it, what do I do?

Again I'll ask what are you feeding them? They are probably craving more protein in their diet. I would switch to some higher, an all flock or non medicated grower, 18-20%. Also try not to feed too many extra stuff which cuts down the protein in a ration. I would also add some fake eggs, sometimes pecking them and not breaking them can deter future pecking. Always provide a bowl of oyster shells on the side free choice.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.
