    Tip for Colouring Eggs:
    Add 1 teaspoon vinegar and 20 drops of desired color to 1/2 cup boiling water.
    Dip hard-cooked eggs about 5 minutes or longer.
    Remove to wire rack to cool. After color dries it will not rub off.

    We need prize donations for our contests! It is your generosity that allows us to run these.

    No item is too small. We can always have smaller items for 2nd/3rd place.
    Hatching egg donations, fowl items new/used in good shape, BYC PFMs, Amazon gift certificates, BYC gift certificates, etc. are all great items to donate. What some of us do is purchase an item from Amazon and send it directly to the winner: just make sure they have plenty of the item in stock.

    :wootThis is my favorite contest!!!

    Oh that's hilarious...you have the pic of Mr. Stay Puft Marshmallow egg. I miss him so.
    I "thought" I was doing a good thing. He seemed to be drying out so I put him in a plastic ziplock bag. However I "should've" left a breathing crack. I didn't. :(

    Mr. Stay Puft went all moldy on me! :hit He was a green fuzzy Mr. Stay Puft when I found him. A Mr. Hulk Stay Puft. :( I had to throw him away. Even the egg part.

    We miss playing with him. mecry.gif
