I posted a few days ago about finding shell pieces after a vacation. I have been home for 5 days, and all has been well in the coop. I went back to work today, so the chickens were home without adult supervision (me collecting eggs every 2 hours) and.... When I got home there were 2 (out of 12) next boxes totally messed. Not messy as in poop, messy as in, rifled through, scratched, all the bedding was standing on end (straw). When I dug I found a 3 eggs underneath the mess. No sign of eggs eaten, but thats what I am thinking. I saw the rooster going in a nest box a few days ago, there weren't any eggs of course, me being on egg patrol. Anyone have any experience like this? Do roosters eat eggs? Are they curious?
