I started off with 10 eggs which my broody australope is sitting on, now there are 7! There is no sign of any shells or debris around the nesting box or hen house. Can anyone tell me what is taking the eggs.
Do you have another broody hen that has had three unexplained eggs show up in her nest? I know, it sounds silly, but on extremely rare occasions broody hens have been known to move an egg from another nest back to their clutch. I really don’t think this is it but I’m trying for all possibilities of leave no trace.
