    Hello,

    Do you have too many eggs coming from your coop on a daily basis?
    So do I! I love eggs, and it's ashamed to throw out eggs because too many to fit in the fridge.
    ......................
    My Mom and I want to find a way of not wasting eggs, so here's the plan:
    What recipes have eggs?, (not too many so your wiped out) and (not to little so it doesn't even leave a dent.)

    Well I may not have a whole "book" of recipes, not even a little. Only 1 or 2 used eggs used a day!

    I need help with this issue and some other people might, I made this thread to learn AND have a lot of fun.

    Please post you "plan" and what recipes help you leave the door without a pile 'o eggs following you around. I mean c'mon, I only have 21 hens! 14 eggs a day, (some are older; they stopped laying.) I am still over flowed!

    I give my eggs away.
    Family, friends, neighbors and to teachers.
    Shoot I have even brought eggs to the manager at my local grocery store!

    I have read that people freeze them??

    My refrigerator is overloaded with eggs!!! I usually make a lot for breakfast, and sometimes I cook some up for my dog or chickens, or just give them to neighbors.

    That's funny KikisGirls! Good idea!

    Yes, I often thought about giving away, trading or selling eggs.
    We might this summer!

    I don't quite understand freezing eggs,
    I put 'em in the fridge, but towards the front (so they don't crack.)

    Since they have pours, when they are in heat they kinda get unhealthy.
    I don't know the whole thing 'bout eggs, but I know the "pour part" !

    google it!
    lol
    I'm pretty sure people do not freeze them in the shell.
    I think I saw how they crack them in an ice cube tray then freeze them.

    I'll google it for ya. BRB

    Oh, my God! Awesome, there's an: "Eggcyclopedia" lol!
    I didn't know you could freeze eggs! That's a pro-active idea for storing.

    Thanks for the info KikisGirls!
