Eggs & More Eggs

May 11th, 2007 at 07:38 pm

We're gathering almost 2 dozen eggs a day these days! Yikes. Even if we all ate eggs daily, we couldn't use all these!

I need to find some outlets for them. Advertising on CL to no avail. Only interest has been from one time buyers, to incubate the eggs for their own flocks. No help at all!

I'll be taking a couple dozen to moms this week end, by Sunday, it might be closer to 4-5 dozen! She can pass them out to her bridge playing buddies. Smile

I have had the same size flock before, actually for over a decade (not the same chickens, new ones every couple years, but always 24 hens or so) but I don't remember having this many eggs.

I don't live on a street with any traffic, so a sign out front won't work. Will keep thinking of options. Will call foster dtr to see if she'd like a half dozen hens for Mothers' Day?? They lost the flock they had to predators. If they have a closed in coop/run, that might be a solution to my problem.

In the meantime......everything we all cook and eat MUST contain eggs! Smile

    I wonder if a soup kitchen-like place could use fresh eggs? I absolutely love eggs, but that's a lot of eggs! lol.

    We got a ton of eggs from our Duvall friends too. Must be something in the water!

    I remember discussion about freezing eggs a while back..

    If you hard boil them can you find more takers?

    Do you go to regular classes or meetings that you can give them out at? Not really money making, but I sure wouldn't turn down free eggs!

    Maybe you can give them to your knitting students or your sewing customers, offer them on freecycle, make a bunch of meatloaf with eggs in it? What about your gleaning group, would they like some? Or a local food bank?

    I've been giving eggs to others........we supply a couple families at this point. I do have my gleaner "job" in the AM, I'll take a couple dozen & leave in the fridge there. Thanks LuckyRobin for the reminder.
    Also taking a couple dozen to moms tomorrow, she is always baking something, so will put them to good use.

    princessperky: The last batch I hard boiled didn't go at all.......I ended up making egg salad out of them and that got used up.
