    the eggs that don't hatch? I know kind of a gross question. But what do you do with yours? I am not really sure what to do with them.

    [​IMG] That's what I do, but the chickens & turkeys usually get em first. You can dig a hole, & bury them. [​IMG]

    Put them all in a bag and gently put them in the garbage.

    I double wrap mine in plastic shopping bags and toss them in the trash! Much easier, I don't have to smell them, and I know nothing on my farm will be eating them [​IMG]

    Sounds kinda harsh, but it works...

    Double bagged and put in the trash.

    My preferred method:

    Wash dishes

    Place eggs gently in sink

    Make sure eggs are on bottom of sink where they will sucked in to the disposer when the plug is pulled.

    Pull plug, turn on disposer, wait for for sink to drain.

    bye bye eggs.....

    I was burying them all until my yard started to look like the golf course in Caddyshack. Now I put wrap them in paper towels, and place them in a disposable plastic food container and into the trash, always with a kind goodbye. [​IMG]
