    My chickens or one of them has started to peck holes into there egg. I have looked up videos on how to try to break these habits, I have put golf balls into their boxes, cleaned the boxes so they don't develop a taste for it. Is there any other things I can try to break this habit ?

    Are you giving oyster shells? They may need the calcium.

    Also up the protein levels on your feeds, they could be craving more.
