Even though flames got close, the wind was blowing northerly away from us so that was a blessing.  Fire engines, volunteer forestry, and police came from all over surrounding cities plus having 3 water helicopters and 2 phos-chek planes all helped!  The worst for our flock was the heatwave but no smoke TG!

I would like to know how everyone does their hard boiled eggs! We boil ours with some baking soda in the water and that's supposed to make them peel better, BUT, ours do not peel very good at all. A lot of the white peels off with the shell. Help, if you know a way to do it better. Thank, Rae

I like to use a little vinegar, It peals a lot better than plain water. Then I put a splash of water in a mason jar, then the egg, then shake it up until there are cracks all over the egg, ,then the shell slips right off

Okay, we'll try that tomorrow. Are you able to peel fresh eggs or do you boil older eggs? I tried to boil eggs from today and they didn’t peel good at all. Most of the white comes off with the peel..😩

I thought for sure he'd be gone by now. We're just back in town today and won't be over that way until the evening of July 3rd. Let me know if you still have him a day or two before then & I'll foster him until we find him a permanent home.

We use a cheap little kitchen appliance called the Egg Genie to boil our eggs following instructions, immediately take the eggs out when the little alarm sounds and put hot eggs immediately into a pan of cold water until cooled.  Then refrigerate the eggs.  We roll the boiled egg pressing down gently as we roll it on the kitchen counter to crush the cold egg shell in a lot of little cracks.  The crushed shell slips off easy when peeled.  If you peel a hot hard boiled egg the white will want to stick to the shell.  I love the egg cooking appliances for boiling or poaching eggs - takes the mess and guesswork out of timing a cooking egg.  Not every nifty appliance brands have room for poaching XL or Jumbo eggs but do a decent job for hard boiling bigger eggs.  Our eggs are medium and small so no problems with having enough room inside the poaching elements of the egg appliances.

Thank you so much, we're going to boil some eggs now and then put them in in the fridge over night. Hopefully they will peel good. I'll be looking for the egg genie.. 😊
