Had to be away from the house all day yesterday, so I only collected eggs at about 4:00. All five girls had laid, but one egg was broken, and a piece of the shell was outside the coop. When I went to the nest they all use (there are 7 other boxes ) there was egg all over the straw and other eggs. So... I've never had an egg eater before... do you suppose, since I found a lot of egg still in the nest, that I don't have an eater, just a clumsy girl? I've never had a broken egg before, either, but the half shell I found wasn't thin, and they always lay in the same box, and have never broken one before. Do egg eaters usually leave so much behind?
