I collected eggs this morning at 10 am. I'm trying to do it late morning bc I knew at least of my girls is a midday layer. Well when my son and I went out (he couldn't wait any longer!) I had two eggs, one from my stubborn barred rock who likes to lay on the floor, and one that I believe belongs to my troublesome white rock. I took the white rock egg from underneath another barred rock who was trying to lay, although the white rock was trying to bully her out of the box. I just went back out to collect her egg. In the box next to that one, I found two more eggs (which I hope means that nearly all of my 6 girls are laying now!). In her box, I found this: So what to you think? Could the white rock have pecked the egg as revenge, since she didn't want anyone in her box? Or possibly it was an accident by the mama hen? Or do you think I have an egg eater on my hands? Is it even eaten? I couldn't tell, as I've never had any experience with an egg eater. I have seen the white rock peck an egg before, but I think she was going for my hand and got the egg instead. What should I do? I'm about to go spend 3 days with my sister to help out with her newborn while her husband works. Its 40 minutes away so I CAN come back if I need to, but I really don't want to with gas being so high.
