    I use an Easter basket with the fake grass in it. It looks really cute on the counter too. Someplace like Pier One Imports or Tuesday Morning, Ikea...

    Thanks! Glad at least someone thinks so :D

    it probably wouldn't be so bad if you didn't have to go far or anything but I'm just picturing our dog, who's huge and kinda rowdy, running up and surprising us or trying to play then there go the eggs xD

    Well I am pretty clumsy so I can definitely see myself walking into the coop door on my way out or leaning too far and dropping them. [​IMG]

    I put an egg in pajama pocket, and leaned on the coop door. That was messy.

    I hadn't even thought of that but I probably would too cause I'm also clumsy haha especially since I'm putting it on top of a hill. I'd probably trip coming down lol

    Oh yes, I would do this!

    I have been using a solo cup for now, I bring out their kitchen scraps in it then bring the eggs back in.

    Silly idea, two baskets, take one out, bring one in.

    Of course I fill my pockets, shirt, cut up jugs, feed bucket, tin can... But the basket looks nice.......



    Wherever it is! I have one somewhere! :)



    If you have a dollar tree, they have all sorts of things that could be used. Cheap, buy several, you might remember one!
