    hi you can scramble them up and feed them back to the chickens and crush the shells and give it to them

    You could boil them up and feed them to your chickens. [​IMG] Mash them up, eggshell and all, it's an excellent source of calcium and protein!!

    Have you asked the local food bank if they take donations? Ours does, and I plan to take our extras there in sets of 6.

    Other churches and charity organizations would be another good spot to try.

    Lastly, I think you can freeze them. Maybe someone else can shed more light on that... probably good for winter when they slow their laying, or for when they molt.

    Do you have a local farmers market?...they usually take fresh eggs and will sell them for you. You may not be in it to make money but sell some of them just to pay for some of your chicken food? We are definitely not in it to make money but I have already had a few offers for people looking to sell the eggs.

    Thanks for all the replies! And I've got another question. How much should I sell a dozen of Medium eggs for? And has anyone ever shipped eggs before? And if so how did that turn out?

    Thanks,
    Andi

    Yes, I would love the recipe! I thought about making Angel Food Cakes too! I found a local Famer's Market and I'm wandering if I pickled some and made angel food cakes if they would let me sell them there? I've never done Farmer's Market. And I didn't know if they allow food.

    Thanks,
    Andi
