Ok, so here is the scenario... Our chickens free range and decided to make a nest in the brush outside. We discovered it and took the eggs but replaced them with two fake eggs hoping they would continue to lay there and not find new place that we might not find. We live in the mountains / forest and have tons of predators and creatures mulling about. We also have a retriever that has gotten in the coop and had no qualms about stealing an occasional egg. The fake eggs have disappeared since yesterday afternoon. Would something or worse yet, our dog have eaten them? Our vet once said that retrievers should come with a zipper because they will eat ANTYTHING and then they have to have it removed before it injures them or obstructs their bowels. Watching her carefully right now. Would something else have mistaken them for real and taken them? Has anyone had any similar experiences? Thanks in advance chicken fanciers!
