    It appears that one of the girls is pecking the eggs. I know I've read about this before but I don't remember what to do about it. We check and remove eggs twice a day. We have 5 hens.

    Where my better half is
    You need to find the hen that is doing the pecking. If she develops an egg eating fetish she will have to be removed from the flock or she will pass the idea to the others.
