I have 7 hens and have been getting 4 brown eggs/ day for a week or 2 (I am not sure if the austrolorp and easter egger are laying.) Today there were 3 eggs all with dried egg yolk on them. I didn't see any shells. DH saw a black racer (snake) in another part of the yard today. Could the snake have broken one trying to swallow it or do I have an egg eater? They are in a run with chicken wire on all sides and bottoms. I am pretty sure that a bigger animal did not get in there.
