    Are your chickens confined or do they free range during the days ?

    If they are confined they are probably bored...give them a cabbage head to peck at...you can hang one from the confines of their coop area...

    To stop egg eating you can put a golf ball in the nesting boxes..or empty eggs and put mustard in the eggs...easy to do with a syringe...

    Remove all eggs throughout the day to ensure minimal risk of egg eating...
