For about three days now my chickens or a couple of chickens in the coop have began to eat the eggs of the other chickens and the duck eggs aswell. Ive bought oyster shells to provide calcium but this morning they did it again. Are there any procedures or methods to stop this behaviour?

If you know who the offenders are arrest the suspects and remove them from the general population before the whole flock starts doing it. I think crowded conditions, boredom, stress are main factors in egg eating especially if they are getting a good diet. It is a very hard habit to break. Good luck. I imagine someone else can give you some more ideas.
