I had 4 chickens go broody in the nest boxes. Not a huge issue but I couldn't collect eggs from the others, as they were still using the boxes. So I moved the boxes, chickens still in them, to the duck hut where they were locked up. Somehow the white ones just kept escaping. This was an issue because they'd go sit on eggs and then I couldn't collect them and the eggs from the duck hut weren't going to hatch if they kept abandoning them. So I finally had enough and locked all the chickens in a large dog kennel with their eggs. I go out 2 days later (I had been supplying food and water in the kennel) and the chickens escape like mad things. That's when I realized every egg was gone. They had to have eaten them all. That's just................... yeah.
