We raise alot of quakers have only had this problem twice and both
times we supplemented more calcium in the hens diet and she
stopped eating the eggs . She is eating them because she need the
calcium from the shell. Try hard boiling eggs and crushing the
whole egg shell and all and top dressing there seed/pellets. We
also put calcium sorbate in their water daily 10 cc to one gallon
