I have two hens that like to lay their eggs on the porch, so I set out two milk crates with straw in them just for these two ladies. They're Cogburn's Redhead and Blue's Penny. For two weeks every morning the ladies lay their eggs and go on about their business. Well for the last 3 days there were no eggs in either crate so I thought maybe they were making a setting nest somewhere to go broody... oh nooooooo,,,,, I saw Red lay her egg this morning and about an hour later Penny laid hers. I went to breakfast with friends, came back, and Red's egg was gone! I searched through the straw but no egg,, anywhere,, but some gooey evidence,,,, About 15 minutes later, me watching through the front window, another hen, one of my huge grey/white fuzzy legged ladies hopped into Penny's nest and crushed her egg! The she ate it. I ran out the door but it was too late, she just hopped out and walked off. Is she bullying them? How can I stop this? They all range together. As far as I know the grey girls haven't laid yet.
