We had an awful morning this morning, and I was hoping to get an opinion or two on what could have happened. We have a broody goose who has been sitting on a clutch of sixteen eggs for almost a month now (they were due to hatch any day now), and she has been a great mama goose ("mean" and not letting anyone anywhere near her nest). I have been checking the eggs almost everyday (to make sure none are cracked); however, today when I went outside she was grazing in the front pasture, no where near her nest. I got worried and ran back to the nest and they were gone--all of the eggs were gone. I freaked out and looked everywhere for signs, there were no tracks, there were no eggshells, there was absolutely nothing that hinted at what happened. Has anyone else had a similar experience? What on earth could have carried off sixteen eggs with no sign?
