    I had two broody hens each sitting on a clutch of eggs. The eggs were due to hatch today so when I went to check, there were no eggs or chicks in the nests, not even eggshells. Do you think it was a snake or the rats that got them? I know I have some rats living in the coop but figured they would have left the eggshells if they ate them.

    I think I remember that snakes never leave shells. So sad [​IMG] I would have been so disappointed.
