    My wife and I take our 2 year old out everyday to collect eggs when his sisters have gone to school. Seems like everyday he drops atleast one egg. Soo frustrating

    no need to is an egg and he is learning.

    my kid now gathers eggs lke a pro and she is almost 5 now.

    breaking a few eggs for a great nature learning experience is fine..LOL

    when the egg breaks, let him start to learn how to recycle and compost that egg etc.

    Get him a nice basket, that way less chance of dropping one.

    You are doing such a great thing. He will learn better dexterity and to be careful, and you are learning patience, which you will need by the bucket load as he gets older!
    When your son grows up he will remember time spent with his dad, and that's priceless. Don't sweat the small stuff [​IMG]

    My daughter has dropped them also, but just loves to go check the nest boxes. A basket is good thing to have for them. I have put eggs in my pocket when there are too many to carry and I have forgotten the basket. I learned the hard (and messy way) to always remember to bring the basket. [​IMG]

    Well- I've gotten in the habit of smashing the eggs that are older, and the birds eat them. My 3 year old now wants to smash ALL the eggs. I have to be sure to get to them first. [​IMG]

    Aww! Just be grateful he will do it at all. My teenager has been afraid of the chickens since we got them almost 2 years ago and will not even go in there! [​IMG]
