Sign Found Of Mysterious Egg Thief
by Callie on Tuesday, January 17, 2012
If you click on the photo of the egg,
I think you will be able to see the tiny scratch marks
made by the mysterious critter
that is living in the chicken coop
and eating the eggs.
This afternoon, I found this egg in the bottom nest box
before the critter had managed to scratch an opening
and break through the shell.
Wonder what the little critter is?
Such fine tiny scratch marks.
I still have work to do tomorrow to finish cleaning out the coop.
It is cold and getting colder.
Made stew soup for dinner on the wood stove.
I was really sleepy this morning and ended up going back to bed
after I fed Morgan and let the chicken out.
It is supposed to rain tomorrow afternoon
so I will have to finish the coop cleaning
The chickens will be locked in the coop and pen
for a few days if it really does rain
and maybe snow.
It would be so great if the hens
take that opportunity to catch the thief.
