(It is very hard to take pictures of chickens, I think, they move SO much.)
The next day I needed to get oyster shells, grit, and organic seed mix as a suppliant with their pellets. When I was at Eggplant, I saw 2 ceramic eggs (they were quite expensive) in a package. They recommended them to me to get the hens to lay where they should. I got home and decided that I could tell the real from the ceramic and put the 2 ceramic in their coop where I wanted them to lay. Just a note, it's not so easy to to tell them apart.
So here is where I got schooled.....
The next morning when I got up and went to feed the chickens, there were 2 eggs laying close together by their chair that sits in a corner of their run far away from their coop, I went to the coop and inside was laying an egg.
I stood up. What was I looking at? 3 eggs. That means one is real. A chicken really rolled one or both of the ceramic eggs out of the coop, down the ramp and over to the side of the chair. I took all 3
in and washed them off. Then I tested them. The 2 by the chair, one was real and one was ceramic. The one in the coop was ceramic.
Somehow Studio laid an egg outside, and chose to roll out a ceramic egg next to it as if to tell me "NO I LAY MY EGG OUT HERE!"
All I could do is laugh. Those smart crazy little women. k~
