wow Joy. Glad you spoted the critter before the dogs. I would have bet the dogs would have found it quickly and then the rest of the story would be different.
Well something found our guineas outside nest. Ate teh inside of the eggs, left the shell. Glad most of them have been laying in the hen house. Of course, I expect tehy will find another nest for outside. I hate that only because I worry we will loose a hen to sitting on the eggs.
