    Sometimes our chickens will do that as well. I think that means they aren't getting enough protein, or their is a vicious hen. Welcome btw :)

    They act like they are bored they have a run and I through out scraps for them---thinking about hanging a head of cabbage in their coop to pick at also----worked for my chickens years ago.

    Welcome to BYC. Egg eating is a hard habit to break and the others in the flock will start doing it too.
