2 days ago my girls were locked out of the nest. Hubby forgot to take down the barrier. We have pullets that like to sleep/poo in there. So we close them out at night. There were no eggs that day. I looked around as best I could it is almost dark when I get home. Today behind the coop I found small fragments of a brown egg. I don't know what happened. I have never had a problem with them eating eggs. I have a 6' privacy fence and I don't think anything would have gotten the egg but the chickens. If the RIR layed outside the nest is it possible the pullets ate the egg? Or could another bird have eaten the egg? I hope these pullets don't get a taste for eggs.
