I have 8 laying hens and one rooster . They are 2 years old and one of the hens is eating the eggs. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I have 10 laying boxes and plenty of room for them. I give them grit and oyster shells. I also feed them agway layer pellets and tractor supply scratch grain. Can anybody help me ?

Sometimes hens get a taste for eggs and won't stop eating them.
Here's a few things you could try,
Put golf balls in the nests.
Fill some egg shells with English mustard.
Collect eggs often.
Hope this helps!
