I have a broody hen that is sitting on 12 eggs. I went out tonight to candle the eggs and see what was going on and 2 of them are missing. I looked everywhere, but nothing. No yolk not even a trace of egg shells. Would she eat the whole thing? I just find that a little hard to believe, but who knows. Is this normal? Also one of the eggs had a 'poke' in it. Like where she or one of the other hens must have pecked it. Nothing is seeping out or anything, so I just left it under hen. Here are some pictures of the one egg. Sorry for the crappy photos, but it was dark I needed 3 hands and its my camera phone.
