    Last week, I put my silkie's egg on a low edge of roof on my run to take in the house after getting the other eggs out of the other coop. I lost the egg. I looked everywhere, after not finding it, I figured I put it in the fridge and forgot.
    Today, I put the silkie egg in the same spot while going to get the other eggs, and saw a crow land on the edge of the run. When I came back the egg was gone!!! I looked around on the ground, no egg. I have a thief crow!!! I am going to try to get a picture, LOL. DH says put a golf ball out there.

    haha darn crow. Ever hear about the carwash? They thought employees were steeling quarters from the machines. They put up video and saw crows sticking their heads up the machines and getting the money. They began to look around and found quarters up on roof, trees, and all kinds of places.

    Do you have any idea how much work it took for me to train that crow to fly
    all the way to your house and steal your eggs???

    Quote:Well, you can have some of them back, but I need a few because they are the best guard dogs for hawks, LOL.
    I was wondering why some of them had purple paint blotches!
