    I think I have one or more of my hens eating my eggs. I have 12 RIR's and am only getting about 6 a day and when I go to collect there is yolk on the sides of the nest.

    What should I do?

    t mucy u can do but go out there and put golf balls in the nest, they will quit and should stop but how it started is that a hen broke and egg on accandect and ate the yolk but golf ball will keep them from eatting the eggs
