I accidentally left a basket of 7 egg in my chicken yard and woke up to these tracks and 4 eggs missing. Any idea what animal these tracks belong to? All my chickens were fine and there wasn't any scratches on the coop or anything. I live in colorado if that helps. 😊 Thanks!!!

I don't know... however rats do take eggs. Be sure to take them in next time! :D

Defiantly looks like a rat. Try putting out traps because rats will probably eat your chicken feed too if they are eating the eggs!
