    Tip for Coloring Eggs:

    Add 1 teaspoon vinegar and 20 drops of desired color to 1/2 cup boiling water.
    Dip hard-cooked eggs about 5 minutes or longer.
    Remove to wire rack to cool. After color dries it will not rub off.


    We need prize donations for our other contests! It is your generosity that allows us to run these.

    No item is too small. We can always have smaller items for 2nd/3rd place.
    Hatching egg donations, fowl items new/used in good shape, BYC PFMs, Amazon gift certificates, BYC gift certificates, etc. are all great items to donate. What some of us do is purchase an item from Amazon and send it directly to the winner: just make sure they have plenty of the item in stock.
