    Does anyone know whre I can get real looking and feeling decoy eggs? A few of my hens have started eating the eggs. My book suggests placing decoys in some of the laying nest. Any other advice appreciated.

    I got a half dozen white fake eggs from eggcartons.com. Good Luck!

    Cheaper way, not necessarily easier - blow out a couple of eggs. Make the hole at one end a little bigger so you can fill with plaster of paris and let it dry/harden. Most real looking eggs you're girls are going to see. :)

    You may try plastic Easter eggs.
