Yesterday while mowing hay...I guess it's possible I scared the hen off the day before while cutting and an egg sucker visited in the night...they don't seem to squashed...either way, DANG!!

It sucks but it happens. I posted earlier this year about my neighbor hitting two nests within 100 yards of each other while cutting hay. Killed both hens and busted 30 eggs. One had 14 and the other looked like 16.

Hate to see that, I noticed a hen was hanging out alot up by the highway on your place when I would pass by. I figured the way the fields had grass that there would be several nests.

Yep, there were two hens that I saw there and both had a bunch of little ones about two weeks apart. They are still hanging around along with another hen. I saw a tom in full strut the other evening but had left my camera at the house...came right across my field.

Isn't it very late for a nest to still be active? I wonder if that nest had already been abadoned, for whatever reason? I once found a nest with unbroken eggs still intact in November.

I ran the hen out of there the day before while cutting hay. I stood up on the tractor looking for eggs or chicks as a cut the area but didn't see any. I think the hen would not have been there if she wasn't tending the eggs...I checked it out again yesterday evening and I definitely didn't hit the eggs so either the critters got to 'em or you're right and the chicks left...
