A Poultry Question

My brother has a few chickies that supply his family with eggs. Recently, he has been finding most of the eggs cracked and broken. What could be causing this? I have gone to get snakes out of his hen house, but they eat the eggs whole. I have never had chickens of my own so I cannot help. Most every farmer I knew in my youth had 'em, but about all I did was gather eggs, feed them, and enjoy them and their eggs at mealtime.

If they are open range chickens ,theyusually get what they need but if keep up surely is liking something in their diet.
They go out of their lot on some days, but are also kept in. They are kept in at night. Too many other critters are in this area that like chicken especially at night.
