Postby skyhightree1 » Thu Oct 13, 2016 9:06 pm

Does anyone have any good dishes to make out of eggs? Slick I sell eggs left and right and this is what I still have left :lol:

Do you like old fashioned custard? Try Rose Acre farms website, they have a custard recipe that I make when the hens are laying good, but I also have my own milk too. Kills 2 birds with one stone for me. They are an egg company, and they have some good recipes besides the custard. I found it on an egg carton that was recycled and I was getting them to sell my pastured eggs, and then went on the website and found some other good stuff.

Looks like my kitchen. It gets worse when they're really laying. I've thought about cooking them and feeding the chickens with them. When you have 10-12 dozen sitting around, they need to go somewhere.

When I would have an overstock like that we would scramble them and feed them back to the chickens as they are loaded with protein. As far as recipes go we've made many a giant fritata, even freezing the leftovers.

Thanks farmer jan and Alan nope no cheese here... I sold some and have decided to cook my workers breakfast in the morning for a week that should clean up the overstock. Slick never thought about feeding them the eggs.

You don't have any cheese? Say it ain't so.

Did your doctor restrict your diet?

Cheaper to buy eggs and sleep better
I wore out a model 12 keeping critters from turning the Mrs chickens into turds. Lost a lot of sleep as well.

You got that right, we have a few chickens now and have had for many years. All are in molt now haven't seen a egg in a few weeks. Just a guess, but maybe $4 to $5 per dozen, no eggs now so I bought 18 at the store for .99 with a coupon. Will keep chickens though :?

I love my chickens more than the eggs they produce. I hatch my own and raise them to almost laying age then sell them. These young city gals with backyard flocks will pay some really good money for pretty chickens.
