I have 6 pairs of birds and 2 pairs each laid an egg yesterday. Today one pair broke the egg and then threw it out of the nest i don't know how the egg got broken but is it common for them to do that and throw the egg out of the nest and why would it happen

First how many nest boxes do you have?Most likely the egg was broken during a fight over the nest box. You must have enough nest boxes for all the pairs.You should also have enough perches in the loft GEORGE;)

sometimes fighting over territory can get eggs broken,so make sure you have enough room for everyone and nest bowls, if you have a trouble maker you may have to remove that one. thin shells can break easy also, so make sure their calcium is given.
