    DH had to work this morning so he got up at about 6:00 and left. I got up at 9:00 and went straight outside to let the chickens out and noticed DH already let them out. So I go about feeding them and talking to them when all of a sudden I see it...a large brown egg in one of the nest boxes. [​IMG] I'm thinking man this egg is big for such young pullets. Oh I forgot to mention my girls are 18 weeks old today and I'm waiting for the first egg. I pick up the egg to find that it's a plastic egg that I keep on my egg scale in the kitchen. [​IMG]

    I called DH and as soon as he picked up the phone he was dyin laughin.

    Mean ole DH!!!!!!!!!!!

    Trisha, that is mean but so funny. Later on today you'll probably laugh about it too.

    I think you should fry up that plastic egg and serve it to him over toast for dinner tonight.

    Oops I got moved. I haven't had a thread moved since I was a newbie. [​IMG]

    That's a great idea, especially since one of my girls pooped on it already.

    I left it in the nesting box, I figure it's a good lil hint to the girls.​

    Quote:Keep us posted on that one. It might turn out funnier than putting a plastic egg in a nestbox.
