    So I happen to have a plastic egg that is from my daughters play kitchen. Its lighter than a real egg or golf ball. Is it ok to put in the nesting boxes?

    Can it be broken? If it can't put it in. It will help the chickens think all eggs are destructible and lower your chances on egg eating hens.

    I put colored Easter eggs in my nesting boxes and they worked great to teach the new pullets where to lay. I'm sure your little egg will be great. Our feed store sells wooden ones for 1.00 as well as another option to look for.

    I fill the plastic eggs with dirt and superglue them closed.
