I have a problem with my hen eating her own eggs. I am trying to get 3 eight week old chicks moved in with her asap but I know I need to break this bad habit first.

I am going to try a "mustard egg" tonight, but I've heard of hens that will only eat their own eggs, so..... I'm thinking about building a rollaway nesting box. Could anyone help me with this? Or does anyone have a rollaway nest they could send me for a fair amount?
Thanks! I need to get this problem fixed asap.

It should be fairly easy to build; just a slanted floor and a tray to catch the egg where it can't be eaten. They are sold online (pricey) and there are also plans and videos showing how to build one.
