    For the past week my chickens have been eating their eggs, it's a huge problem because I know it is close to impossible to stop. Anybody know some effective ways to make it stop?

    Go to the top of the BYC page and click the Learning Center, then click the box that says Maintaining a Healthy Flock. And there should be an article " Six Tips on Breaking Your Egg Eater"
    Sorry I don't know how to post a link.

    There is a lot of info on here to help with that problem. I went through the same thing about a yr ago - i placed fake eggs in the nests & collected them more often often & that helped for my flock. There are lots of other tips though - some people use golf balls, tipping nest boxes and so on. Best of luck :)
