Ok I have my cochin sitting on 8 eggs for 2 weeks now. She made her nest in the woods next to my Jap who hatched out 9 2 weeks ago no problem. I went out of town for 2 days all was good when I left. My hubby and son were home. I came home yesterday checked all the chicks ect. I sat outside for a bit and Winny thats the mama who is sitting was out longer than normal and she was just swaking and pacing??? I ran over to her nest and looked in NO EGGS not even shells Im just dumb founded what took her eggs I have never ever had a problem in 15 years out here My german shepard keeps everything out of the yard... He wont let nothing into the yard I do have rats and we have feral/pole cats? could they have taken the eggs????
