Does not bother the chicken eggs in the nests, but ducks lay their eggs on the floor and the goose had a couple on top of a bale of hay and something just opens up the end of the egg and eats the contents? Any suggestions?

You have an egg sucking varmint of some kind. The first suspect is a dog, but things like skunks, possums, rats, coons, etc will suck an egg.

Rats come to mind. As well as possums. Your general location might also help identify the culprit? All of us have additional predators based on own own regions and time of year. All varmints love easy-peasy chickens for their 'taking' ? Please be more specific, to outwit your Marauder.

There's a million+ people on BYC who may be of assistance here.

Great camaraderie on the site.

Welcome....!
