    I saved up a couple dozen then did my worming. Even if you're getting some eggs, think about how many more you'll get as spring gets closer! I think it's the perfect time even if you have to throw out a few eggs. Better than throwing away dozens in the spring.

    Good way to look at it [​IMG] I will keep telling my self this when I crack open the store bought eggs and they are eating their own eggs.
