Decided to try it for the first time today. Somehow I ended up making a Christmas tree ornament
It's a tad early...but who cares?
Yeah, that's right...my chickens lay golden eggs







But a question to any of you who also do/have done these, what do YOU do to make them stronger? That one was a little banty egg, so pretty fragile. I'm scared to touch it much
'Fraid it might spontaneously explode, haha.

And pictures of your creations would be wonderful
I love seeing pictures of others' art. Makes for good inspiration!

I was thinking of using Plaster of Paris to fill my blown out eggs. I was planning to use them like ceramic eggs, as dummies for my nest boxes...but it could work for your project too.

I was also wondering if plaster of paris would be alright. I have some of that somewhere, so I think I may try it! I was also thinking some with sand or something else like that to use as dummy eggs. I definitely need some...my pigeons don't understand the meaning of the END of breeding season

Beautiful egg, BTW!
I think I'm going to try the ornament thing too!

DH will be slightly annoyed, only because I will be serving only scrambled eggs for a while!

It's a tradition for me to only use homemade ornaments on my tree, this will fit in perfectly.

Haha, nothin's wrong with scrambled eggs!
Yumm. And thanks for the compliment
You're right, these things sound like they'd fit in nice on your tree!

That's an awesome idea. I'm always looking for homemade presents my kids can help with. Thanks.
