The eggs went missing out of the nest

while our hen was laying her eggs, some chickens laid eggs on her nest. So she was sitting on 9 turkey eggs and 4 chicken eggs. All 4 chicken eggs hatched and she moved the chicks to a new nest. Her original nest is now empty, no turkeys eggs anywhere. Does anyone know what she would have done with her eggs??? Would she have ate them, buried them? We have looked for them all over. The hen is currently in the new nest with the baby chickens....

The nesting site is totally undisturbed, no shell fragments, footprints, we have never had a problem with predators. We checked for signs of predators.

This year crows have been taking my turkey eggs. Is your run covered? Otherwise snakes is your best bet.
