I just received a new hen from a friend, she stayed in the hen house for the first 2-3 days. I went to check on her and I saw where she had busted open the eggs the other hens laid and was eating them. Can this behavior be stopped or do I get rid of the new hen? Thanks

Make sure she is eating a good complete feed and she should stop eating the eggs. She is probably scared with the move and the others may be picking on her not letting her get to the food.
Did you not introduce then slowly? By slowly I mean not touching only seeing each other for a while (think wire wall)
I'd collect them often for now.
