    Well I think I have found out why I never have eggs in my coop. My hen just starting laying last week but there hasn't been anything the past few days. Tonight I just found a flying squirrel in my turkey coop. I hear they are huge egg thieves. Another local farmer has been having trouble with them stealing all their chicken eggs.

    Has anyone else had any trouble with them? If so, how did you get rid of them. I'm so excited to start collecting eggs to incubate and this squirrel is killing it for me.

    Hope you can help! TIA

    Their easy to trap.
    Find the hole where the tree rat is coming in and place a trap or two there. Game over.
