    One of my BR I have found today to be an egg eater. I checked this morning and there was one egg in the nest. Just checked about 15 min ago and there was another egg, and it was on top of a smashed agg covered in yoke. No idea which girl laid the egg or which one broke and ate the other. Should I buy some golf balls to stick in the nest to discourage them from pecking?

    That would be a good idea, but I did it and the hen still kept on eating the eggs! Poke a hole in both the sides of the egg and blow out the yolk and whites with a straw. Fill it with soap and set it in the nest. I did this and my hen slurped it up and never ate another egg again!!!!!
