    Not even sure where this would go, but it involves eggs.

    I have 2 egg eaters, no not chickens, they are dogs! My two dogs are stealing my eggs from my nest and eating them! How do i stop this behavior?
     
  2. BAD DOG!

    I would move the nest boxes to where the dog's can not get to them.
     
  3. If you don't have your nests in a coop, elevate them to a point where the dogs can't reach.

    Fence. The dogs will follow their instinct, good luck training this out of them. Our six dogs are separated from our 25 chickens by chainlink fence, and both groups are happy with plenty of room to roam.
