    I know that some of us have small households and larger flocks [​IMG] while others have a huge flocks and sell eggs.

    I take my extras to local churches weekly. If you speak to the pastor's, priests etc etc, you will find that many have shut-ins and needy families that they are assisting. The eggs are a tremendous help to the churches.

    I just delivered 4 flats (5 dozen eggs) to two churches this morning.

    So, rather than toss eggs out, what do you do with the extras?

    I have 36 chickens. I sell the extras. It seems like as soon as I run out of room in the fridge the orders start comin in. Ken LOVES egg salad too.

    I press them through a sieve, add 1/2 tsp teaspoon of salt per1 cup of eggs, and freeze in ice cube trays.

    I got a dozen cubes with 7 duck eggs!

    One cube per egg in recipes.

    Sell 'em!

    The nasty, rotten, broody duds go to the pigs. It is funny to see/hear them explode in the pig's mouths, they love it!
  5. ...what do you do with the extras?

    Hi! I boil them and feed them back to the birds.

    I sent 5 dozen to the food pantry this morning. I grew up in a house that didn't have enough food to go around. I donate because I know how cruddy it is to go without.

    When I had a lot more chickens than the 5 I currently have now I took flats of eggs to the soup kitchen fairly regularly. One of the ladies that ran it was so happy she made me a dream catcher [​IMG]

    Now that I only have a few girls I still get extra eggs and I usually give them away to friends. My plumber got a dozen yesterday cos he solved a problem that half a dozen previous plumbers and several thousand dollars had not solved over a 3 year period.

    Yeah... I was happy enough to give him more than eggs but I restrained myself..... barely [​IMG]

    Hatch those I want.

    Eat the freshest, I don't want to hatch.

    Boil the rest and give them to the dogs and birds. One day I'll be able to toss them to the hogs, but alas, no hogs for me for a couple of years. [​IMG]
