    Tell people you'll give them a dozen if they send you the egg carton. That's what DH and I do. Usuaully someone comes along who wants some right as we are going into overload.

    Another thing is to make the pound cake recipe someone listed on here, and then share it with others. It uses 10 eggs. I'll try and find the recipe...

    ~ive it up and move to the country! Chickens are more addictive than crack! I am totally chicken high right now. Been staring at my incubator for two hours. And it gets worse everyday. I am trying to go to a big sale at the feed store on the 30th. My mom and I are gonna have to find a wa to do it behind my husbands back. I have 29 eggs and 20 chickens that are still living n my bedroom!

    I have too many eggs at the moment, too. The solution is simple. Pigs.

    We also make a lot of "quiche" with eggs....very easy if you use a frozen pie shell, throw in some cheese, spinach, bacon..whatever ya want. It uses a ton of eggs and the family loves it. Also...if you get really over-run, you can hard boil them and crush them up really well (I use a potato smasher) and feed them back to the birds. They like them as much as people do! Also....I think everyone on here has a chick-addiction and probably most have an annoyed spouse to boot. I know I do!! LOL...
