    anybody going to be selling really clean, hollow goose or duck eggs this year?
    I bought some last year and 'might' be inspired to do some more egg-decorating as Spring nears --
    right now, it seems a long time away -- :-(

    I bought eggs from several BYC people a few years ago -- most were beautifully clean but I did get a box of 'less-than-clean' ones with yolks dried over the shells -- tried to 'incorporate' that into the design -- 'authenticity,' you know --- but don't want to do that again!

    Once all my ducks are back to laying I will be selling blown eggs. I sold quite a few on Craigslist and Ebay

    thank you -- I won't be needing very many -- I get less and less 'ambitious' each year!

    I just blew some cute little serama eggs this morning. Man I thought I was going to pass out! LOL!!
    I was going to post and ask what the tricks might be if any at all.
    Also I thought it would be easier to suck it out rather than blow and that about made me throw up!!
    How anyone can drink raw eggs I will never no! Nasty!! LOL!!! But it was easier than blowing them. [​IMG]

    Darn. I was hoping you were wanting blown chicken eggs. I'm right in the middle of blowing about 450 of them.
