My chickens have recently started eating their eggs. I have researched on how to resolve the problem, but i need to know which chickens are actually doing the eating. Is there a way i can tell who is eating them?

Sometimes they will have a bit of crusty egg yolk on their face, otherwise you really need to sit quietly and watch and hope to catch her.

Might be best to find out why they are eating them.

Tell us more about your flock, coop and feeding regime.

One way I read about was to roll a fake egg onto the ground amongst the whole flock,
the one who goes at the egg the hardest maybe your culprit.
