DummyEggs are solid non-toxic bird egg reproductions used to control breeding in pet birds. Our eggs are exclusively designed, manufactured and Laid in the USA since 2006 by DummyEggs®.

BIRDS COUNT THEIR EGGS! 
Hens start building their clutch (nest of eggs) by laying one egg every other day. Her DNA tells her exactly how many to lay. She will lay until she has the proper number of eggs for her species. Any extra eggs will be pushed out of the nest. A clutch of eggs are all laid consecutively, usually within one week.

Our Philosophy
"DummyEggs cannot stop mother nature... just try to guide her a little. At DummyEggs® our point of view is to give her a nest simulation so she can behave normally. There are no health concerns with a healthy hen who is laying normal natural eggs for reproduction. Dummy eggs cannot stop your bird from ever laying another egg which would not be healthy. Don’t deprive your bird of basic comforts that are often advised, as added stress is not what she needs. Give her the eggs to sit on as nature intended. Controlled egg laying helps to curtail the current crisis of over population and homelessness of pet birds." ―Melanie


THE DUMMYEGGS® INFO CHART
This chart gives you the dimensions of our plastic dummy eggs to compare with your birds' egg, if you have one. If you are getting ahead of her laying, or it is broken, it is pretty safe to go by species as listed below. 

A Green Cheek Conure is a very small parrot and uses our 1" x 3/4" "Cockatiel" size. Ringneck Doves can be the 1" or the 1-1/4" depending on the bird. A small Cockatoo or Macaw will match with our Medium Parrot size, while your Umbrella Cockatoo or Hyacinth Macaw will take the Large Parrot size. Most of the other species are pretty straight forward and you will succeed using the recommended size. 

All our dummy eggs, except finch, have the same egg shape. Many people think they need the egg to be a little rounder or a little longer to match perfectly, but this matters little to your bird. Birds will incubate just about anything that resembles an egg when in brooding mood.

CAN I EXCHANGE EGGS FOR ANOTHER SIZE?
We know it is hard to guess the right size of your bird’s egg, especially if you do not have a real one to measure. The fastest method is to simply order another set of the right size for your bird. E-mail me with your new order and I will send along a return envelope.

OUR STORY: HOW DUMMYEGGS STARTED

 

OUR STORY: 
How & Why DummyEggs® Began



DummyEggs.com grew out of our own total confusion when our bonded pair of Cockatiels laid fertile eggs at a time when we could not spend time caring for a needy clutch of chicks. We searched the newly burgeoning internet and found an occasional post about using fake eggs to replace the real ones. Finding plastic eggs became an enormous challenge. Egg laying is an important subject that no one wants to talk about and surprises many pet owners who are at a loss as to what to do when it happens.

That was in 2006, when Melanie & Kirk started DummyEggs.com as a one page website to sell the 3 sizes of plastic eggs they were able to import from Europe. After that, we resourced many different size eggs from various undependable sources. Finally in 2014, we contracted an injection molding company and manufactured our own dummy eggs.

Now, 15 years later, 2021, the use and existence of dummy eggs to help control breeding is well known. Avian Veterinarians recommend our site to clients on a regular basis. DummyEggs.com has helped veterinarians deal with frantic bird owners whose hen has done what hens naturally do... lay eggs.

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 do require an avian veterinarian immediately.

Common advise is often to make your bird feel less secure, less comfortable because hens won't lay 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!


Sincerely,
Melanie & Kirk
