    I had 2 RIR hens go broody about a week ago in the chicken pen and both hens were trying to set on the eggs we sell so we couldn't let that happen

    so i took both hens out the pen and let them out in the yard with the bantys and sure enough one RIR hen made a nest next to the back steps and the other RIR hen made a nest on side the house in the bushes plus one of my banty hens are back broody again so thats 3 hens on eggs around the yard... nothing new there but this time all three hens eggs got taken and we don't know from what.. there are know shells in sight or anyting just a empty nest and now today i notice one of my banty hens are missing and i don't know if she's hidden with her new eggs or something has taken her cuz banty hens will hide very good when they go broody i'm sooooooooooooooo confused [​IMG]
