We got ours from Calgary.
I had some egg eaters too...what worked for me is....,in the regular boxes make sure they always have a lot of straw, sometimes the eggs break on the bounce if they are a standing layer and they can't help but peak it open. Second I add colored golf balls to the nests, when they peak it and it doesn't open they start to give up.
If you do start to get eggs let me know, I might still be interested
