Where's my eggs?

We may have a egg eating snake raiding our chicken coop. We haven't had any eggs for over a week, and we usually get 2 or 3 a day. We think it may be a sneaky python with a big belly coming in and feasting on my scrambled eggs! If we find him we will relocate him elsewhere!

So today The Hubbster went down to the chook house which is down the hill a paddock away. And I yelled to him "feed the chooks while you are there" and he yelled back "I already have". Then I thought, he bloody heard me! Sound carries. So then I thought about our neighbours who also live a couple of paddocks away and I made a mental note to stop yelling. And to absolutely stop saying Fuck! really loudly because sound carries....

If you don't have a roof on your chook pen those crows can be sneaky...

We are now thinking it's just because it's winter and as my uncle just said "would you want to sit your butt on the cold nest and push an egg out??"
