    OK so we have had 2 hens laying on the same 9 eggs for 18 days today. Well I went and took a peek before their bedtime. And 2 of the 9 are gone! I mean Vanished! Does anyone have a clue what happened, I looked high and low in the coop they are gone,no shell,nothing.My fiancee asked if I thought a snake Maye got in? I don't think so, I have 2 gold balls in there (I heard that works) but again,even if snakes smell the eggs, I'm just not sure if it could get stubborn MaMa's off those eggs.. Does anyone know about this,I am sooo lost [​IMG]
