  2. WOW.... Did you crack it yet? You might want to blow out the contents and save that baby! I wonder if it's a double yoker...

    I have not cracked it yet. It's been years since I've blown one out. How should I do that? I am thinking double-yoker too! This BO typically lays an x=large, so I believe she's the one that laid this one.

    WOW! At least a double for sure. I would not try to blow it. If you're like me you'll pop your ear drums out!!!! Get a big syringe and poke holes in both ends and use the syringe to suck the contents out. SOOOOO much easier!

    to blow it out, just use a large needle to poke a hole at top and bottom. insert the needle and break up the yolk.

    blow onto the top and the contents will come out. catch with a bowl.

    it can be hard, so don't pass out! [​IMG]
