My bantam hen went broody and foster hatched eggs on January 1st. She has laid only one egg, about 2 months back, in the hay in the tractor where she and the chicks sheltered for the winter. They are now moved to a new coop (for about the last 6 weeks). Just last week I finally started letting these chicks (now 4 full months old) and my other hens free range together. The bantam, Butter, snuck back into the old coop and laid an egg the last two days in a row. She is the only bantam so I am 100% sure these 2 eggs are hers. Do you think that her foster hens have been eating her eggs this whole time? Or could she just be good to go now that she can access her old digs? ...the new coop does have four nesting boxes available to Butter and 4 hens - plenty to choose from - will be moving all the hens there soon.... If they are eating her egg (the horror ) what can I do about it?
