I've been buying these glass eggs in hopes that one day I would fill the egg jar on our kitchen countertop. Well, I succeeded in my quest today.
My wife and I went to a variety auction today, and low and behold, there staring at me, with a somewhat angelic glow ( as I saw it) was a beer flat full of glass eggs. I haven't seen many lately, they just aren't showing up these days.
Well here sat a flat of about 40 glass eggs just waiting for me to take them home. I won the bid and I couldn't wait to see if my jar would finally be filled.
I am glad to say (and probably, my wife is also), that the jar is now full of glass eggs and this chapter of my bucket list is fulfilled.
Most of my eggs are of normal size, although, I do have a few Banton Chicken glass eggs in the jar, along with a few wooden eggs that have a little chain attached ( probably so the chicken doesn't kick it out of the nest).
Photo #3 shows one of the "Banton Chicken eggs" and also you can make out one of the wooden eggs in photo #3.
I placed my favorite 9 oz. coffee mug next to the jar, to show you the size comparison.
I never raised laying hens, or any chickens, for that matter, but I am told that placing an egg sized "egg counterfeit" in the nest, encourages the hen to lay more.
