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.

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!
