Chickens can be finicky with where they lay. At times you can provide them with that perfect nest, and they still lay on the ground, in the dirt, or on fecal matter. Providing them with wooden eggs encourages them to lay in the appropriate areas, and lures them in the nest as well. If you have a chicken eating egg issue, the wooden eggs are used to solve that problem as the chicken will not be able to break the wooden egg and eventually give up. Wooden eggs also are wonder for arts and crafts activities! These eggs are the Chicken egg size therefore are perfect for the large fowl chicken. Lure that chicken into that nest with these wooden eggs!
During the winter time more predators start looking for food closer to homes. Coyotes and bobcats are a nuisance here in Florida during the winter season since they are taking care of their cubs. I hear howling occasionally. Having free range poultry is beneficial for the bird, however, protection is needed as well. The Poultry Net is your option! Being 48 inches tall, your chickens and geese can be contained. The spacing is made for them. This is a prefabricated fence with 11 electrified horizontals. All you need to do is pick an area you want to contain your animals and set it up! This fence keeps out most predators. As always, do provide your birds with a safe shelter for the evening. Give your poultry the gift of protection this holiday!
