How far should my nest be off the floor?
Did you know you can test an egg and get an approximation of its age? All you need are the eggs and a bowl of cold water.
Gently drop the egg into the bowl of water. If it:
- sinks to the bottom and stays there, it is about three to six days old.
- Sinks, but floats at an angle, it's more than a week old.
- Sinks, but then stands on end, it's about two weeks old.
- Floats, it's too old and should be discarded.
