    They learn quickly, and hopefully don't find the sound of the splat and cracking funny or you end up with a mess accidently very often! That happened to a friend out here, her daughter dropped and egg and thought it sounded "neat",, every chance she got after that she'd get in the fridge and drop all the eggs, then she started going around outside and picking the eggs and dropping them. She thought it was great until dropped an egg she took from a broody and there was a baby in it. She never dropped, or picked up, another egg!
    Yours looks like she learned right away!

    These pictures are really cute.[​IMG]

    I don't have kids, but my dogs keep offering to herd the chickens for me (no way!!). They'll probably want to collect eggs, too, when my hens start laying.
