I ordered the wooden one and the ceramic one. The birds don't care either way. I prefer the ceramic as it is easy to clean. I used a blue permanent marker to draw on it so I can tell the difference between it and the real eggs because it is so life-like.

I ordered 4 of these to lure my hens away from the laying box that is occupied by a broody hen. They look and feel so real that I marked on end with a pen. When I was making breakfast yesterday, I noticed the mark on an egg that I was about to crack open. Great product!

The eggs came just in time.
Two days after they arrived the girls started laying. The eggs look so real it's hard to tell the ceramic ones from the real ones.
Great product.

Very effective for teaching new hens ansd placating broody hens. Increased egg production by 50%. Put one in every nest, worked like a charm!

Firstly I recommend spray painting the eggs with a clear gloss sealer for better texture. THey work like a charm in teaching new hens. However, I just found another added benefit with older hens. If I notice that the hens are overusing or bunching up in a particular nest, I place ceramic eggs in the new additional nest box. Like a charm many of the hens will "follow the eggs". They are great!

The girls like these eggs. I bought five eggs for four boxes. One box has no eggs & no one has used that box. Two boxes have two eggs and the remaining box has one ceramic egg. The boxes with two eggs seem to be the favorite boxes.

I have hens that have just begun to lay and they were pecking at their own eggs. Even though I improved their diet and entertainment, I was still having an issue. I bought these eggs--quick delivery, thank you!--and put them in the pen. The hens immediately started pecking but soon gave up. I have all dozen in the pen and they are used to seeing eggs laying all over now. No more egg eating. I highly recommend these eggs and also putting an "x" on them so you can tell them from the real eggs!

Looks so real you have to mark them to tell'em apart from the real ones!

Well, I did manage to break one but otherwise they work as advertised. All of the hens (except one which has her own nest site) follow the egg.

As others have said, these eggs are a little light but they were much less fragile than I thought they would be. I used a ordinary brown marker to make an "X" on the ends of them so I could tell them apart from the real eggs. They encouraged my hens to lay in the new nest boxes we have. My broody Buff Orpington hens love having another egg to lay theirs with, and my "I-must-have-another-egg-in-the-nest-in-order-to-lay-mine" Black Austalorp hen likes them too. I would reccomend trying the birchwood eggs from Premier as well.

Look and feel like the real thing. A bit lighter in color, which is fine by me since it allows me to distinguish them from the real ones. I had pullets that wouldn't use the nest boxes until I put one of these in each box. Now they are all laying in the nest boxes. I couldn't ask for more than that!

Best fake egg on the market. A little lighter than real eggs, but very similar in texture and color, they fooled all of my hens. I have different breeds co-mingling, so they are used to laying in a nest with a variety of colored eggs. These clean up very well with a little water and a soft brush or sponge.

Very nice, but also very hard to tell them apart from the real thing . Perhaps you could figure out a way to mark them?

Looks identical to my RIR eggs, a bit lighter and a bit rougher texture.

I thought I'd try the ceramic eggs as my pullets would not lay in the nests. The third day I introduced them into the nests with the eggs they began laying there finally. I had literally tried everything else! Thank YOu!

These look real work well. I had to mark them to be able to quickly tell them from the real eggs. I would buy them again. I also have white egss and would like them in this color also as the brown ones only seem to work for hens that lay brown eggs.

These eggs look and feel just like the real thing. My chickens saw these and went to the nest to lay their eggs. Perfect, it could not get any better than these eggs. I have Black Japanese, and Phoneix hens, and they love these eggs.

I have used wooden ones that work well. I have never had a case of egg eating, and I believe that the wooden eggs helped. To identify the "fake" eggs, just paint a stripe around the middle.

Very real looking, will have to make a little smiley face on them to tell them from the real ones! Fragile however.

Very nice look. I used them for dummy nest eggs and it seems to be working. They are a little bit lighter weight than a real egg and a little more matte finished than a real egg which is the only way I can tell them apart. Since the unglazed ceramic finish isn't as smooth as a real egg, it makes them harder to clean off but I would buy them again if I needed to.
