    I think you can find them in craft stores. If you are looking for them to put in a nest box, you can also use golf balls.

    I've been looking for one of those for about a week now and decided to make my own with a 2" by 2" block of wood and a spindle sander them im going to paint it white. I would recommend this.

    Thanks for the help. We have a Cracker Barrel here and I find plenty of golf balls when I'm in the woods looking for mine.

    Any large craft store will sell wooden eggs of various sizes. They're not expensive at all.
    Ceramic ones I find this time of year (just after Easter) in the sale bins!
    Oriental Trading Company has eggs also - forgot if they were wood or ceramic.
    I'm wondering if a rounded stone would work - got tons of those in the yard (round here they're called 'river rocks'). They'd hold a hen's body heat very very well!

    Can't wait for our 6wk old to grow up!
