The neighbor that hunts all the time needed eggs today. I only had 18 but still gave him a dozen. He said he has some game cams he will come set up so we can figure out WTH is going on. He likes the hens and brings them treats. Today he brought a big pumpkin for them.
With the prices of eggs I think they are selling them. This happened 2 years ago too. No one believed me until there were tracks in the snow from the front yard to the coop and back out. This time hubby is taking me more seriously.
If they were or are hungry heck ring the bell I keep a fully stocked kitchen and am sure I could come up with more than eggs.
I cannot even meet my sales at this time. I am supposed to deliver 36 eggs on Saturday to a gal with medical issues that needs super fresh and organic foods.
I do have a Malamute but he is such a baby about the wind he howls and raises heck until someone saves him from the wind. The other huge dogs do not have enough hair to be out in the cold for long. They are half weimeriner and half german wire haired pointers standing 30 inches at the shoulder. Nice big protective but under dressed dogs.
I will be sure to post what we find. Heck could be dang squirrels but they would be getting fat by now. I figure I am losing about a dozen a day since a couple of the old hens are done molting in time to lay again.
