Help what do I do with all these eggs I have eggs in the egg fridge that are from Aug. I will cook and feed the oldest ones for my dogs. Should I offer them for sale at a lower price? Or just feed them all to my dogs? I know that most all of them are as good as or better than store eggs. I would eat them myself with no worry. Its just more eggs than we
can eat. My egg customer's are getting my freshest eggs. And I could use a few more people to keep up when the girls get going good again.
What should I do?

Sounds like it's time to start your holiday baking! Do you have freezer space for a few pound cakes?

I'm sure I'll eventually run into this problem-- I might have more chickens than we need, but I've also found there is a huge market in my area for fresh eggs-- as most everyone who sells them runs short and can't supply everyone who wants to buy-- but that's my plan if I get too many-- baking and freezing.
Luckily, I love egg salad, and have to brown bag my lunch, and don't mind repetetive meals. Hubby likes omelettes and hard boiled eggs for snacks in his lunch, or in general-- I like to have a bunch boiled and ready for snacks.

I've read that you can freeze eggs, but they have to be separated, etc,-- and you can use them in baking later.

I'm sure you'll get some good answers soon!

Thank you for your reply NurseNettie. I have 28 1/2 dozen eggs out there. I just put on 2 dozen to boil. And I'm cooking for the dogs.

take them to a local soup kitchen. They will use them all in a couple days with NO complaints about freshness. Tax deductable and the right thing to do.

If you don't have a soup kitchen, try the local domestic violence shelter. Most of these programs have had their funds drastically cut in the past several years.

Quote:Actually I whip mine up (whole eggs) and add a sprinkle of salt to freeze. I put them in baggies 2 at a time and use for baking, omlettes, scrambled or anywhere that you'd use whipped eggs.

There are times when we have too many and other times when the chickens are molting or too hot/cold out when I don't get enough for us so this comes in handy.

this is a good question, we are getting close to a dozen eggs a day and not selling that many yet....I might have to try the freezing thing.
The selling eggs is our 9 yr old sons buisiness, he's gotta sell eggs to buy the chicken feed but no one really knows we have eggs for sale, I think I will put an ad on craigslist today. And maybe a sign out on in the driveway, we are on a busy main road and everyone knows our house due to the fact we have a 10 foot tall rocket in our driveway.....guess i could get the DH to make an egg sign and attach it to the rocket.

A great way to freeze eggs is whip them up and then pour into ice cube trays to freeze. Then after they are froze put them in a zip lock bag for later use. An ice cube is about the average size of a egg.
