Chickens: Off the Lay

Our chickens have appeared to be off the lay over the last few weeks but the mysterious appearances of cracked open egg shells down the far end of the property has us thinking there is a thief on the lam. The hot weather and rain has brought all the snakes out of hiding as well as lizards and other reptilian life so perhaps one of them has stumbled upon a great source of protein that just requires a little bit of stealth to pull off.

The chickens certainly don't appear bothered with whatever is going on and don't appear under threat themselves. We shall keep it under surveillance though as those eggs have pancakes waiting for them goddamn it!
