    I"ve been thinking something has been sneaking away with the smaller bantam eggs or eating them when we're not looking or that maybe I have an egg eater, but yesterday Dh collected 3 eggs locked the girls up left the eggs sitting on a chair to go do something else and forgot abut the eggs, he went back to collect them later and all were gone except part of 1. it was still daylight. would crows steal the eggs? squirrels?

    Good luck finding the egg thief.

    Maybe put a video cam inside or outside the coop to be sure of it. I would say the crows would like eggs aswell.
