    We get almost 3 dozen a day and there are only two of us and one dog. One day, my DH scrambled 11 dozen and fed them back to the various groups of birds. I give extra eggs to regular egg customers, too, when my fridge is just too full. We had to bring one of our little dorm fridge's back into service just for eggs.

    there is a rehab place in norhern wis. they release whatever they can.. what they do for eagle feed is put a beer cooler on several boat landings with a sign for donations.. the fishermen dump their unwanted minnows and any kind of fish that they do not want to keep.. into the cooler.. it is collected twice per day..

    so as to not hi-jack this thread: you could feed the fish with the eggs..[​IMG]

    Make quiches and freeze them for later.
    Or, you can hard-boil them to feed back to the chickens to give them a protein boost.
    Or, you can decorate Easter Eggs.
    Or, you can find a family with children (they tend to eat a lot of eggs).
    Or, find an ovo-lacto vegetarian who needs lots of eggs in their diet to sell them too.

    I don't have that problem yet but hope to someday. I am planning on baking a lot. But I have 5 children and I think I can pull it off.

    I don't know what your situation is but if you put a couple dozen in the bator between now and Friday you'll have Easter chicks. You could sale them for a dollars or two apiece straight run and presto solved your problem for this week.
