Chick n' Ewe eggs

The chickens on our farm are very spoiled. When Jerry brings greens home from the store (the 'throw aways'), the chickens get first feeding. And they get Poulin grain, oyster shells and what ever else they can find to eat. And, all 60ish are free range.
Occasionally the eggs are super dirty. Time to change the nesting material.

This is 'normal' dirty

This is clean and almost dry.

A little Dawn and some warmish water is all it takes to get the eggs clean and ready to use.

Some dry time in a dish drainer....

    And they are packed up and ready to go to MHT.
 This cooler holds 15 dozen.
         The refrigerator at the top of the driveway got 5 dozen more. Not bad for a week, in the winter time... We get $2.50/dozen at this time. I am hoping not to raise our prices anytime soon. (o;
