Lay Eggs???

I don't know where my son (4) got this but when he gets mad at people he says, "Go lay eggs!" Any of you guys teach him that?

    lol...yep. That way he's not in 'hot water' with you!

    What a cutie! Can I borrow him now and again? (only until he's 8 or 9 though!)

    They are called layer pellets. They have the right amount of vitamins and protein to nourish the chicken and keep her healthy and producing eggs. You only need a rooster if you want fertile eggs. Chickens lay eggs naturally, some more often then other breeds but usually 1 egg a day. And by the way, many eggs you buy in the store are fertile, they just were collected within a couple of days time and the hens were not allowed to set on them. You would never know without knowing what a fertile egg yolk looks like.

    That's cute!

    Sort of like an adult would tell someone to "Get A Life".

    I didn't teach him, but I would have. It's a great stress reliever for the little ones. Much better than some of the garbage I've heard come from out of the mouths of babes.

    Yeah me, when I was a kid and we got upset we'd say, 'go lay an egg'. I guess it was as close to sounding mean or cussin' as a little kid could come and not get into trouble. lol

    BTW-it has to be said in a certain tone of voice. lol

    AS close as i can tell, it is wishing that you fail at something. IN old vaudevillian terms, " I laid an egg" meant the act didn't go over at all. Other than that, I can't come up with any other meaning. Phil

    Naw, maybe "go suck an egg" -- like that dirty old egg suckin hound (that won't stay out of the hen house, that's nasty and roots like a hog)

    Ask him where he learned this. I'm curious.

    I sang to my son ".and cover her up, all but her head"

    One night he asked why I wanted to put butter on her head?

    When my sister n law got angry as a child she said "slide the board!".

    Love kids...they do say the cutest things.
