    I found some eggs from my Bantam Cochins in my hay pile tonight. I don't thin they have been there long but I was wondering if it is ok to eat them after they have froze? And how long is too long to be froze? Also any suggestions on getting myu girls to lay in the coop. They are free range so I don't even have a run for them. Would locking them in the coop for a few days help?

    You can freeze eggs in ice cube trays and then just thaw them out, cook, and eat them. That's what my ex in laws used to do when they lived in Bettles, Alaska to save space in the fridge and have eggs last all winter. [​IMG] I don't think freezing hurts them at all.

    As long as the shell hasn't cracked, they should be good to eat. [​IMG]
