Not quite sure what happened, but there was a thin shelled egg (some of my girls just started laying a little over a week ago) that was eaten on the floor of the run. There was a mess and broken shell, but only on the floor. For them to have gotten it out of the nesting box (not our first thin shelled egg-super easy to break), then out of the coop and down the coop ladder without a bit of wet mess means one of two things. I either have ninja chickens or someone laid it on the floor of the run. I'm hoping it's the second because if it's one the ground it's food to them. We've have seven eggs laid with no problem. Then this.
Anyone ever had a newly laying chicken lay outside of the nesting box and then the unmentionable happens?
