    Inquiring minds want to know...

    I just did our egg count, we have 30 beautiful brown eggs in the fridge! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    We haven't been home much, so our egg supply is at an all time high AND I still don't feel like giving any away [​IMG]

    Eggs for breakfast tomorrow [​IMG]

    38 chicken eggs of various colors (including some green ones) I can sell, 9 eggs with some defect for ME to eat, 15 Cayuga duck eggs which I sometimes add to a dozen for one or two customers. Mostly I eat or bake with 'em.

    I'll be taking 36 chicken eggs to work with me tomorrow, so my fridge will be less full right away. Whew!

    Then there were the bumped or dropped ones with slight cracks I save to give to the cats every couple of days: 3 of those. (I really SHOULD use an egg basket, not just tuck the gathered eggs into a sort of pocket by pulling up the hem of my blouse....)

    I give 18 eggs to my land-lady whenever she says she's low on eggs. I sometimes give some to the maintenance worker who cleans the cubicles at work because I like her a great deal and she helps me perfect my Spanish, and I also give eggs to the co-worker who so often helps me and my land-lady with various ooomphy-type tasks like lopping branches or painting walls or the time he helped me put the roof on the coop I was building.

    Sold 2 dz and gave 1 dz away today so 3 dz left in fridge (1 dz is little pullet eggs that I'll hardboil for kids' lunches) and like gryeyes a few that are destined for the cats and dogs--glad I'm not the only one who uses a shirt "basket" to carry egg in. [​IMG] I didn't used to crack so many, but now that I'm graining the steers they're getting pushy.

    I don't count eggs, I count by cartons.
    I think there are 4 or 5 18-packs and 2 12-packs

    I know at one point last week we had about 150 eggs in the fridge and practically nothing else [​IMG]

    I have 60 in the refrigerator. I need to start passing some of the eggs out the neighbors.

    Only 5! Mine just started laying last week and it's pretty sporadic right now. I am still at that stage where I don't eat them right away because I like to look at them and marvel at how precious and perfect they are!!! [​IMG]

    (in case you weren't able to tell these are my first ever chickens)

    Quote:This is how most of us are in the beginning...holding back on eating too many at one time, so that there are some for later.

    Then, they start laying everyday and you have to get more creative than fried or scrambled eggs for breakfast.

    Each one is a perfect little meal,


    p.s. Wow, there are some serious egg count out there...counting by the carton [​IMG]

    I ate the 1 laid today for a pancake dinner!

    I also had given five to neighbor who helps take care of chickens when I am not here, earlier today.

    And tomorrow I will get two more!

    Way to many. I think about six or seven 18-counts plus a couple dozen. And that's after I made about 30 deviled eggs a couple of days ago. [​IMG] Time to give some away again.
