    I have a broody barnevelder. She has been sitting on 15 eggs for over a week. Today, I check on her and ALL of the eggs are gone. They were there yesterday. She also has a few broken eggs stuck to her feathers. What happened to her babies?!?

    Or maybe, if other hens have access to her nest, there might've been a squabble in the nest and they stomped them. It does happen. Sorry :hugs
