I am not familiar with that bird but google it and see if that bird is scared of anything like owls etc. and I would put up a fake whatever and hopefuly the whatever doesn't scare the chickens either. Keep the dog away from eggs if you can. My guineas keep other birds away from my flock

Not much will scare off a scrub jay, and they are pretty smart birds. We have several in the neighborhood that have learned to drop walnuts in front of moving cars so the tires will crack the shells. I would try making your coop less accessible to them. Maybe something like a flap door or curtain where the chickens access the nest box. Since they are pretty small birds (relative to a chicken) it may deter them. Good luck!
