Scrambled eggs

Given that we'd been buying eggs recently, we were a bit miffed to find that our new chooks had obviously been laying eggs for about two weeks. We'd been checking the nest boxes regularly and all that time hadn't noticed they'd chosen alternative places to lay their eggs! It was particularly galling that we had to ditch all 27 eggs as we didn't know how long they'd been there!

You can find out if the eggs are still good by floating them. Put them in a big bowl off cold water, if they are buoyant, toss 'em. If they sink readily, try them. I've never had a bag egg using this method and it sure beats throwing them out. Eggs will keep pretty long in cool weather.
