Pheasants picking eggs

I have four hens and a cock which are picking the eggs they are laying.
Anyone know how i can Stop/Reduce them doing this?
I have being giving them turnips all Winter which maybe is a factor?

Try making a tiny hole in the egg and put in some spices like cinnamon, pepper or paprika, when they go to eat theses eggs the spices should repel them

Blinkers are very good at stopping this.
