    I know they would be like half a bite each, but could I maybe eat my extra button eggs. I love pickled eggs, so I guess I could do that with them.

    Can't they also be used for craft eggs too?

    Sure, and then tell your friends you had a 24 egg omelette for breakfast. [​IMG]

    Post pictures of the crafts you make with them.

    I know you can make blow eggs with them, so maybe i'll do that. I came up with one, but I'll have to try a small one and see if it works first.

    24 might make a meal, but it might take a few more.[​IMG]

    Yes. I eat my button quail eggs all the time. I sure don't want to hatch them all out! In fact, I just posted the other day here somewhere that I'd had a 30 egg meal. Someone asked if I meant 3 egg meal. Nope, meant 30. [​IMG]

    I bop each egg gently with a sharp knife, crack into a small dish, then pour over into another bowl. This way, if I did end up with a bad egg, it doesn't contaminate the whole bunch.

    You can also boil the eggs and feed them back to the buttons, just chop them up shell and all. Coturnix eggs are a PITA to peel, I imagine button eggs would be even worse! [​IMG]

    THINK I'D RATHER PEEL M&MS AND EAT THEM BEFORE GO THRU SO MUCH TROUBLE TO EAT AN EGG. I GUESS THE CHOCOLATE IS MORE APPEALING TO ME [​IMG]

    Why ACV? White vinegar would work just as well and is cheaper [​IMG]
