Last night something came into the barnyard, pulled all the tail and wing feathers off one of my broody ducks (I assume she was fighting it while it stole her eggs) and took/ate all of her eggs. It also raided 2 other duck clutches in other locations not near the first one. thats 2 dozen eggs in one night, and not one piece of shell to be found. What would do that? A skunk was in our garage last night, but our house is so far from the barnyard, and it didnt smell like skunk in the barn area at all. I'm so upset, now the only eggs I have are the ones in my incubator... and hopefully the girls lay a few more this season. My little one is 5 and said this morning that when he grows up he is gonng be "just a skunk hunter and kill all those naughty skunks!" because right now we're assuming skunk...?
