    I have about 20 hens and 1 rooster. One of them is a egg eater. But I can't sit all day to watch the criminal. Any suggestions??

    I nailed a small shelf inside the coop and put my cell phone on it to record the nest boxes. Came back a couple hours later and I had my egg eater.

    You could do the same thing with something like a GoPro....

    What are you feeding? How often do they get treats? Any free ranging?

    What kind of feed are you giving? Is it available all day long?
    The reason I ask, is that egg eating is almost always caused by protein deficiencies.
