Egg Producer's Conspiracy

(Mom, CLICK on the arrow in the lower left hand side of the above image to view video.)
I have always suspected that the tradition of hunting for Easter Eggs was something lobbied for by the egg producers in America. (Like Hallmark lobbying for Mother's Day, Father's Day and all the other assorted "holidays" requiring the sending of a sappy card). It would make sense for them to lobby for a tradition that requires the use of something that is in great over-abundance right now - EGGS! A family can eat only so many eggs- I am learning that right now. All nine hens (except for the setting one) are in full production which means I am getting about 3 to 4 dozen eggs a week. No way Mike and I can eat them all. I know - let's color them, hide them and then hunt for them. Most will get broken (or lost) and/or get eaten by the assorted varmints that frequent the yard. Georgia still gets her egg one-a-day. I have learned to freeze them as well (in case of egg shortage - another coyote massacre). But I also have powdered eggs in the pantry (what WAS I thinkin'????)
What is that diet where you eat only protein and no carbs? Atkins, that's it. I guess it's time to go on Atkins - but I cannot CONCEIVE of giving up bread. OK maybe it's time to start an "Egg Recipe Blog".
I await your thoughts....
I pray ya''ll have a blessed Easter and remember the reason we celebrate. Sunday is not the end - it is the glorious beginning - the EGG! The beginning of a new life
2 John 1:6
And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.

That's a lot of eggs. They're not fertilized, right? How long to they keep with a hen sitting on them?
