    I finally got a button egg yesterday. I am sooo happy. I got another one today.
    Sooooo, what do I do with them? Besides eat or incubate them I mean. My incubator is way too big to turn it on right now with just a few button eggs, and I will eat them if I can not find a neater thing to do with them.

    Hmm, good question, I have some in the incubator due like right now. I wonder how many of them it would take to make an omlete? [​IMG]

    Blow them out, eat the eggs or freeze them and add to them as you get them. Rinse them out good and let them air dry.

    Make a pair of earings or string the eggs on very fine chain or fishing line, tiger tail, whatever for a very delicate necklace. If you decide on the jewelry, I would suggest that you coat them in clear nail polish to add strenth to the eggs and help keep the shells intact.

    You can also just set blown eggs in a pretty bowl and admire them.

    I like the jewelry idea. How do you go about getting them nice and hard?

    Quote:You could use Modge Podge. That's what I use on my blown egg Christmas tree ornaments. Works great!

    Modge Podge, excellent. Anyone have pictures of what they've done with eggs?
