Ok I had two hens sharing a nest, seriously they were tag teaming and many a time would "sit" together. Well a few days ago(maybe inching towards a week) the one hen left and was no longer brooding with the other hen. Now last night and recently the other hen was, my one daughter said she was on the nest last night at close up time. Well this morning she leaves with the rest of the flock.. odd is what i thought at first but anyways.. well I discover two eggs broken.. both with dead ducks yet i would say not of equal development. NO predator got in the barn, she is not marked up at all so no fight occurred. I can't find anymore eggs in the nest either but i'll be honest i have no clue how many there were anymore i know when they started it was double digits but rarely got a chance to see much later on. what happened? kinda sad they didn't make it but I'm glad all with the adult birds themselves is ok... perhaps there was something wrong with them? I didn't look all that close.. sorry.. just a bit much for my morning.
