    I am not sure which hen it is, I just got this new set of girls and still cant tell all of them apart yet, any way when I go to collect the eggs there is always one with a peck in it [​IMG] Will the golf ball trick work or do I need to get one of those glass eggs and if so any idea where I can find them? thanks in advance [​IMG]

    Anything that vaguely resembles an egg will work. Golf balls, rocks, plastic easter eggs (fill with sand for weight,) etc. I'd use at least 3 golf balls per nest, to confuse them.

    The glass, or ceramic eggs can be found at most craft stores. You could also pick up a wooden egg at the craft store (JoAnn Fabrics, Michaels, Hobby Lobby) or in the bigger Walmart that have craft sections.
