    Put some golf balls in there with her, after awhile she get a head ache from peckin' on them. After that she may leave them alone. Let's hope. Will

    I hear blowing out an egg then filling it with dijon mustard stops egg eaters pretty quick. [​IMG]

    Quote:just make sure, if anyone else collects eggs they are aware of it. My g/f collected a mustard egg and put it in the fridge with the rest of them......


    I lost a regular customer over that one.....
