I put ceramic eggs in my nesting box in order to stop a chicken from eating eggs. I seemed to work but when I went out one morning, one of the ceramic eggs was missing. About a week later the other was missing. Well whatever chicken was breaking the eggs stopped so I just let it go. Then..... a chicken starting breaking the eggs again so I got another pair of ceramic eggs last week and put them in the nesting box. Two days ago one of the new ceramic eggs was gone. Yesterday the remaining ceramic egg was in the box but outside the coop was a broken egg. This morning the remaining ceramic egg was gone. I took an extendable rake and tried to see if somehow a chicken might be getting the egg out of the nest somehow and pushing it out the door and maybe it went under to coop, but there was nothing there. What could possibly be moving these eggs without hurting any of the chickens? I'm baffled.
