    Okay for the past week or so I get five eggs a day from seven hens. And only four eggs make it in the house, because I find a completly smashed one everyday. I took pictures today and want to see if they are just stepping on them or eating them. I have two nest boxes but they all only use one.

    To me it looks like a thin shell.

    Someone is laying soft shelled eggs. Give them more oyster shell.
