Hi everyone, I have three barn cats that have stuck around and I feed every day twice a day. They are great mousers and I have no issues with keeping them for as long as they want to stay BUT I believe they are eating my chicken eggs, which is not okay. My 11 girls have slowed down their egg production as the days are short and I do not supplement light source for them. Last week I had collected 7 eggs and one off the top fell and broke on the floor. The cats sniffed around and as I finished up chores the three cats enjoyed a fresh egg. I didn't think anything else of it until yesterday when I did not find a single egg. I let the chickens free range and sometimes I can't find an egg if its in a dark spot. This morning I went out and did another check and couldn't find a single egg from the day before (very frustrating) but I saw one of my girls make a nest and lay her egg, finishing with her song. Tonight I went to collect my eggs and there were none!!!! Not a single egg! Not even the one that I saw being laid. I noticed a couple of home made nests but no eggs! What can I do to deter my cats from eating the eggs?
