    I'm having a bit of a problem. No one is buying eggs! they all go to the other lady in town who has more chickens [​IMG]

    so i have this HUGE excess of eggs. i get about 10 a day give or take and i do NOT want them to go to waste, and i don't want to eat nothing but fried or boiled eggs. my boyfriend and i will be stuck in the house for a month too, so new recipes are a must! i need new ways to cook eggs!

    any neat pickling recipes? maybe some odd recipe for hard boiled eggs? anything will do so long as it is off the beaten path [​IMG]

    thanks in advance!

    If you're looking to store the eggs you can freeze them.

    Separate the whites from the yolks...put them into containers in portions you will use and freeze them.

    Your chickens must be fairly young to still be laying this time of year...next winter you won't be getting all those eggs.

    Quote:yeah they just started laying a month or two ago. the cold doesn't seem to bother them so much, we had chickens before but lost them all to a dog attack, and before that from before the time i was born to when i was about 12, then we moved and had to get rid of them all over again.

    today i am trying this: http://appetiteforchina.com/recipes/chinese-tea-eggs

    i
    am totally excited about it, too! an hour and a half longer until they're done.

    That's a cool looking recipe.

    It's not the cold that will stop your chickens from laying...after the first year when chickens lay the most they ever will...they will mostly stop laying when they molt their feathers and then they lay according to the number of daylight hours they get. As the days grow shorter the chickens will cut back on their laying.

    I have 24 hens...in the summer I will get between 9 and 12 eggs a day...right now I'm averaging about 4 eggs a day. When spring gets here they will start laying again.

    my dh made scottish eggs for us a couple of weeks ago and they were awesome!

    hard boil the eggs and then pack sausage meat around the egg and either fry or cook them. i'm sure you can find a recipe for them somewhere.
