    make a toilet seat for the nest so the eggs fall down inside!, just kidding, I have heard breaking an egg eater of the habit is almost impossible..I hope Im wrong though.

    I only have 3 hens but one would break open an egg every once in a while. Since it is not always possible for me to collect them warm from the chicken, I blew out one and put mustard in it. I read they don't like the taste. I did find that one broken and not sure how big a taste they got. I also put golf balls in, reading that they will get tired of getting headaches from pecking them and will stop. Mine stopped. So there is hope!!
