    you could put a gold ball of a wooden egg in the nest box. When someone pecks on it, it will hurt their beak, and make them stop pecking at the eggs. Pecking at the wooden egg would keeping them interested in it, and keep pecking, but soon they will get bord pecking at the eggs and stop

    I have read on here that if you blow out an egg and then fill it with mustard this will help stop an egg eater. Apparently they dont like the taste of the mustard.
