    I was checking for eggs today, and I saw a squirrel in the chickenhouse. We know that there's a family of squirrels living next to it, because they eat our chicken's grain :eek:. When I looked for the eggs, I found that one had a hole in it. Do you think it's coincidence that the egg had a hole, or do you think the squirrel made the hole in order to suck the egg?
