I posted yesterday about my hen hatching out 1 chick on Tuesday and as of yesterday still sitting on 5 eggs. this afternoon I went to check on them and no eggs. None. No shell or anything. Just mama and 1 chick. They were there this morning. We have 1 cat that roams around but he's generally scared of the chickens. Besides he wouldn't eat 5 eggs w/out a trace - would he? She began sitting on eggs in a nesting box about 2 1/2 ft off floor. On Monday I moved her and eggs to a box on the hen house floor with chick feeder and waterer. On Tuesday single chick hatched. I've been watching ever since, looking to see if eggs had pipped. So this is strange. Would a raccoon or other predator go in there during the day? gomer (head rooster) didn't sound any major alarms today (but he does tend to cry wolf, at times). So, my question: will the hen eat her unhatched eggs???
