OH no. Well any normal hen will eat a broken egg. But the egg eater is bad news. I would isolate her, and go get some game bird grower (22-23% protein) feed and start trying to get as much protein in them as you can. Black sunflower seeds are good for that too. Sometimes it's a nutrition thing. The isolated hen I would put pinless peepers on to see if it stops her.

There's also theory that curtains over the nest boxes can deter that behavior as well, but if she's eating it right after laying I don't know if it would work.
