just wondering. I can't find where my chickens are laying thier eggs (we only have 2 hens currently and they hang out mostly where the goats are.) I am wondering if my goats are possibly eating the eggs?
I found my hens laying on the floor in the straw of the goat pen. The goats would then trample the eggs which would disappear into the bedding, or be eaten by the chickens. I did see a doe sniff a busted egg once, she then made a face of disgust *who would want to eat that ?*
I would suspect the chickens over goats if the eggs are being eaten.
Raising Dairy goats in SE Nebraska - 2004
I had a alpine doe that loved eggs and her and the chicken were best friends the chicken would lay her eggs in the hay feeders and granny would eat them.
I think it was a deal they had granny would make sure the raccoons would not eat her and the chicken would thank her in eggs
But none of my other goats will touch them so I guess it depends on the goat.
