    I have three nesting boxes. 1 plastic egg in a box, 1 plastic egg in another box. I have a shiny plastic egg. I was wondering if it would be ok to put it in the other nesting box. Is putting a Shiny egg in the nesting box going to do anything? Or is it fine to put it in?

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    One thing about it, if they dont like it they will just move to another box. My silly girls have three to choose from but I have seen the day when 3 birds all try to get in the same one. It's like no one wants to move. I leave them alone to do their thing.
