    It took two weeks to find her new nest after she moved it the last time. I've clipped this hens' wings and I still can't keep her in the fenced area.
    Now the dog found it, and has egg shells all over his face. What can you do to stop a dog from eating eggs??

    It's probably my fault, as a couple had fallen from the counter, and I removed the shells and let him have them. Guess he could still recognize them, eh?

    I have never tried this personally, but heard that it works to stop egg-eating dogs:
    Blow out an egg leaving a shell with small openings in the ends.
    Fill the egg with either spicy mustard or hot sauce using a syringe.
    Plug the holes in the ends.
    Leave the egg out for the dog to discover.
    One taste and problem solved.

    Good luck.
