ok, I have 2 bantam hens on the nest. one had 7 eggs and one had 8. I go in today to check on them and raise them up and one has 4 and one has 5, exactly 3 eggs missing from under each hen..I would say a snake, but it just seems too strange....no one is going into the hen house because beside those nest was a laying hen with 2 eggs under her. once she lays she goes back out to the run, why wouldn't the snake have gotten those instead??? am I making any sense here??
