    Fist let me say I am NOT kidding here ok but I know it is hard to believe.
    I have 8 sex link hens. Getting about 7 eggs a day. Moved the girls to a barn where deer I raise have access too. I installed sno fence infrom of the stock entrence door to keep the deer out. Girls been fine for about 4 weeks now since hte move. Still 7 eggs a day. Till yesterday. All of a sudden 0 eggs. HUH? Something's not right here Houston! So I am watching form the house this AM and I see a Doe jump over the snow fence into the barn. I run down there and here she is with her head in the nest eating the morning eggs. Good grief! Going to have to fix that problem tonight some how!
