Wooden Nest Egg
Attractive nest egg that discourages egg eating (hens are unable to break this egg). Won't break when dropped like ceramic eggs.
When to use nest eggs?
- To persuade hens to lay eggs in a nesting box (and not elsewhere).
- To discourage egg-eating by hens, a bad habit that can spread rapidly and is hard to stop.
- Made of Birch

I have a turkey sitting on chicken eggs. Now she sits on her wooden eggs and collecting eggs is not as difficult. She would get so upset! Now the wooden eggs make it easier.

I'm so glad I purchased these; haven't had a problem with a chicken breaking an egg since I put them in there. Great product and excellent service. Very pleased!
Eggs look great and shipping was fast.

Great eggs - the girls love them.
Shipping a bit high.

It's a wooden egg. Size, color, and weight are close enough to the real thing that our three-year old has trouble telling them apart from Dominique eggs when she does the gathering.
