    TIPS...



    [​IMG]
    For Coloring 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.
    [​IMG]
    test first, but veg oils can make eggs look very shiny and beautiful!



    BYC Member DONATIONS NEEDED FOR CONTESTS!


    No item too small! We can always have smaller items for 2nd /3rd places!


    Hatching Egg Donations, Fowl items new/used in good shape, BYC GFM's, Amazon Gift Cert, BYC Certs, etc 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, example chicken rooster fowl mugs are always cool!
