    I have 2 Indian runners that have been sitting on a nest of eggs diligently for weeks. Today I came home and all the eggs are gone. The only trace was part of a duckling that my chook was eating! Would my chooks have eaten all the eggs? They all free range during the day. But I usually let the duck out a couple of hours before the chooks so they get some food.

    yes they can eat eggs.

    rats, snakes, dogs, crows, possums among others would all raid the nest too
