    Have you ever put eggs in your pockets?

    More than once?

    And what was the result of said pocketings?

    Don't lie now. Tell the truth!

    Yep - often put eggs in pockets. No broken eggs yet!

    I put eggs into the pockets of my fleece bathrobe every day... haven't broken one yet! I know it is just a matter of time, so I have my eye out for a cute basket or something.

    I always end up putting them in my pockets. Once or twice I have totally smashed one, had to dig the shells out and wash the jacket. More often I hit my pocket on the coop doors and crack one or two. I will never remember to take the basket out with me each time I go out to the coops!
