Chickens in overdrive

I noticed last year during winter that our chickens did not deliver their daily egg. They went onto a two day cycle - hit-one-miss-one kind of thing...

This week we had more sunshine than rain and the warmth obviously got them going into overdrive...in 5 day we had 19 eggs! Amazing!



Plans for my eggs:

Quiche
Cookies
Baking
Scrambled egg...who knows...the world is my oyster (or should I say egg!?!)

Did you know you can scramble a whole bunch of eggs, pour them into ice trays and freeze them? Each ice tray slot will hold the actual amount of an egg. So you can take an egg "cube" out, thaw it naturally, then use it in recipes and such. One cube = one egg!

Of course this would only be necessary if you have more eggs than you can give away or use! :)
