    Oh what a fine looking pair they make !!!

    So, question for ya. Do you wash your eggs ? Just wondering because you keep them in pails not regridgerated.

    How old are they before you won't sell or give them to people?

    I know, that is so sad about the bunnies. MLH [​IMG]

    FT... If you go to Cottonville or Adams Friendship... I could meet you in the Dells. Then it's only about 30 min from Adams, or 40 min from Cotton. You wouldn't have to make it down to me completely. Otherwise I'm an 1 hr 10 mi from Adams friendship.

    I keep them there on the counter for a bit, like sometimes 3 or 4 days...they eventually get into the refrigerator....I dont normally wash them; but with the weather wet they can get pretty nasty. I usually just eat the messy ones and wash them right before I crack them if they're really bad! I figure with the "egg bloom" intact the eggs are meant to sit around in the nest for sometimes up to 2 weeks and they are still able to develop a baby...so how bad can they be? I read somewhere that they NEVER refrigerate eggs in Europe! I have found out though if you want soft boiled eggs you must start with cold eggs when cooking for 3 mins! Also cold eggs work much better for poaching!
    OK--enough procrastinating...I need to move NOW!

    DD is 12 now and is proud when she can look at our chicks and tell who is who. She also points out to me that she told me that Gadget our white peacock was a boy right from the get go. [​IMG]
