DummyEggs.com grew out of our own total confusion when our own bonded pair of Cockatiels laid fertile eggs at a time when we could not spend time caring for an additional clutch of chicks. So we searched the newly burgeoning internet and found scant rumors of using fake eggs to replace the real ones. Then finding plastic eggs became an enormous challenge. Egg laying is an important subject that no one wanted to talk about and surprises many pet owners who are at a loss as to what to do.
That was in 2006 when we started DummyEggs.com as a one page website to sell the 3 sizes of plastic eggs I had found a source for in Europe. We resourced many different size eggs from various undependable sources after that, until in 2014 when we finally hired an injection molding company and manufactured my own dummy eggs.
Now 14 years later, 2020, the use and existence of dummy eggs to help control and sometimes encourage breeding is well known and taken for granted. Avian Veterinarians recommend my site for my eggs and brooding information daily. DummyEggs.com has helped the vets deal with a common natural occurrence that all too often results in frantic bird owners running to their office. The response from the avian medical community, not knowing if it is an emergency situation or not, is often expensive and invasive, not to mention the time it takes teaching each client the intricacies of brooding hens.
With dummy eggs now available for all size pet birds, people who care for the health of their precious birds can quickly and easily find information on what to do when their bird lays an egg. The worst thing you can do for your bird is just throw the egg(s) away. This forces them to quickly replace the missing egg(s) draining their bodies of vital calcium and nutrients which in turn can cause devasting effects such as egg binding and calcium deficiency. Life threatening symptoms that require a veterinarian.
The common advise back then, and still today, is to make your precious bird feel less secure, less comfortable because hens won't lay as many eggs if they feel threatened or food insecure. Our philosophy has always been to give them what they really want, A FULL CLUTCH OF EGGS. This is when nature signals to stop laying more eggs. Birds count their eggs! A bowl of dummy eggs simulate a full clutch of eggs that your hen can sit on until she looses interest. She feels fulfilled and you are in control. So simple! So healthy! If you follow our directions, they can work like magic!
