“Her DNA tells her exactly how many eggs she should lay, extra eggs will be pushed out of the nest. Dummy eggs inhibit your bird from laying more eggs to replace ones that have been removed or broken. And because they are plastic, they won’t hatch!”
Replace the real eggs and relax. Your bird can now sit her fake eggs until she loses interest in 2 to 4 weeks depending on species. You can find the number of incubation days for your species on our Size Chart. We want her to think she has completed laying all the real eggs she is supposed to. This is what signals her hormones to turn off and she naturally stops laying more eggs. It is all a numbers game, it is better to have too many eggs than too few.
Many birds, male and female, break their eggs and then keep replacing them. This leads to calcium depletion and health concerns. There are no health concerns with a healthy hen who is laying her normal natural eggs for reproduction. DummyEggs cannot stop your bird from ever laying another egg, but work very effectively to control the number of eggs she will lay in each cycle and in her lifetime.
Please use our Size Chart to determine the egg size you will need that corresponds with each of the most popular domestic birds. Also included in this reference chart are the number of fake dummy eggs you will need to purchase based on average clutch size. Make sure to remove the dummy eggs after the number of incubation days listed for your species.
“My philosophy is to give brooding hens what they want, a nest of eggs. Depriving her of comfort, food and daylight will create a weak sick bird who will still lay eggs.”
*Clutch size refers to the number of total eggs laid in a single nesting cycle.
