Egg mystery solved....

Just as I am getting concerned about the egg production slipping... Kaelyn and Hunter run across the answer. Playing in the barn they discover no less than three nests filled with eggs. Thirty six eggs in all! With the cool temps most of them may be still good.. But we will check for sure.

How do you check eggs? The quick test for age is the float test: drop each egg into a cup of water. If I lays flat on the bottom it is fresh. If it stands on end at the bottom it's questionable. If it floats... It's too old to trust.

The only problem is we can't test them until ready to use because getting eggs wet will destroy the antimicrobial coating naturally on the outside of the shell. So we fridge them and test before cooking.
