For any of you that might not be as limber as you once were, NASCO has a reacher to grab eggs. http://www.enasco.com/ProductDetail.do?sku=C19078N I have a Golden Retriever reacher, but the tips don't have a very good shape for grabbing eggs. This one is much nicer! It looks like little round rubber cups on the tips. This might even be nice for mini coops that you reach into, when those naughty hens lay in a corner, instead of that nice nest box you provided. Or tractors that are low to the ground. Whether you're disabled, stiff or just plain fat, it's handy!
