    I don't have any idea why your rooster's doing what he's doing - who knows what goes on in those little bird brains of theirs - but a lot of folk like to separate a broody hen from the rest of the flock and give her her own private nesting box just so stuff like that can't happen. Maybe you should think about putting her and her eggs somewhere safer so no more of them can get broken...
