Nice to meet you Jonathan. I don't know what could have broken that in half, and I'd be afraid to find out. You can also try golf balls and if the critter applies that kind of pressure to break it, I think it would blow up in his face. Maybe because it had no luck finding something to eat in the other one, it may have given up -hopefully.

Thanks for the welcome , the nest eggs are made out of ceramic or some thing like it so if it was a snake I would not want to see how big it would be

hi Jonathon -- Welcome to BYC--I would be afraid of the creature that broke your ceramic egg! Did it happen in the day or overnight?
I once had 2 free rangers insist on laying in a corner of the carport so I set up a nest there with a fake wooden egg. Something stole the egg overnight! I couldn't find it anywhere. A few days later, it was back in the nest full of teeth marks! I figured the critter brought it back? Or a hen found it out in the weeds and carried it back???? It is a mystery we will never solve...
Everyone is penned up now, and forced to lay in the coop which is locked up at night.
