Can You Trick Chickens

    Chicken Trick

    In this little prank I am trying to see if my chickens will go into a new nest will a fake egg in it.
    The fake egg is because studies (including mine) show that when theres a egg in a nest it makes them feel more comfortable in that nest.
    But will the go in a new nest with a fake egg in it? Heres some Photos to help you decide.


    Feel free to respond at my BYC email!
    Had fun reading/ doing this try it your self all you need is a fake egg,
    Longish grass, and some sort of rectangular basket.
    Then put the grass in the basket like a nest next place the egg like

    you find them in your normal Nest every day,
    then all you can do is wait, and wait, and wait.
