yankee ingenuity -trick 'em

In the hen house with the younger chickens Pops has placed a wooden egg in each nesting box to sort of lure them in and get them laying. They look and also feel just like the real thing, so important to mark them in some way (an X works) or you bring them in when collecting the eggs.

I've heard of people using plastic Easter eggs, too.

@jho78 that would solve the problem of inadvertantly collecting them, for sure.
