    Too many eggs....not enough time.

    We now have 4 dozen eggs in the fridge and tomorrow I will have another dozen after making trip to the coop.

    Hehehe I have it so rough.

    When I get to that point I'm gonna try pickling some eggs. So far I'm doing more casseroles or baking to use up the extra eggs.

    i just learned that you can freeze the eggs and use in baking..

    crack open the egg and mix the yolk up and pop it in the freezer in a baggie

    So far I have given my Dad a couple dozen and sold a few dozen. Just cant seem to keep up with keeping the fridge empty. lol

    Not bad for 16 hens and 1 roo. But not to worry I have buff orpingtons I'm sure they are all going to go broody on me.
