I recently gave all of my chickens dewormer, so I am in the middle of the two week period where I can't eat the eggs. Rather than let them go to waste, I have been placing them around my property, far away from the coop, for the local wildlife. Strangely, only a few have disappeared, and the rest have sat untouched. My property is mostly wooded, and I know that there are plenty of animals that would enjoy some tasty chicken eggs. I chalked this strange behavior up to the dewormer causing the eggs to smell wrong, until this morning. I accidentally left several eggs on the ground right outside the coop when I closed it up for the night yesterday. This morning, when I let the chickens out, they had all been eaten, and there were broken egg shells scattered around. A couple of months ago, the same thing happened, except that the eggs I accidentally left out just had the tops removed, while the contents were eaten. I'm concerned now that something is living under the coop. I have electric net fencing around the coop, but do not have it on at night because my coop is very secure. I have never seen the fence disturbed in the morning, and find it hard to believe that a raccoon or possum could climb over it without causing some serious sagging or damage that I would notice. It is just so strange that only the eggs right next to the coop would be eating, while all of the other eggs around my property haven't been touched. Ideas?
