    OK, this waiting for them to lay is getting old quick.
    I think we need to up the ante, and have some entertainment while we're at it.

    I've read about putting wooden eggs or golf balls in the nesting boxes to help stimulate them.
    Fine, I can do that,.... but I'm gonna mess with their little heads, and give them a real challenge.

    Just wait until they get an eyefull of these, and lets see if they are up to the task.
    I'll show THEM who's boss...... LOL!

    Wow, those are really nice! How about you send them to me and I'll send you the day-glow pink and green sand filled plastic Easter eggs (sealed with duct tape no less!) that I put in my pullets nesting boxes? [​IMG]

    I thought you guys would get a kick out of those.

    I don't actually have them yet,.. I found them on ebay and am currently bidding on them.
    If I win the auction, I'm deffinately going to put them in the girls nesting boxes.

    I love to mess with peoples heads,
    and chickens are people too, right ??? [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That is hilarious-although, you are setting the bar kinda high there, aren't you? Those beautiful eggs may intimidate them into NEVER laying!

    Quote:[​IMG] You crack me up! I have this mental image of the pullets taking double and triple takes at the nest box filled with those incredible eggs and telling each other, Nope, no way I'm even going to try to compete with that!
