I assume, back in the day when everyone had chickens and other farm animals this was a common enough discussion. Who's laying, who's lambing, what's working, what's not. But I don't have a lot of people to chat it up with, so I relish checking in with other hobby farmers or urban farmers [many of those in Portland].
Anyway, back to my eggs. I'm getting low on my frozen eggs. I only froze a dozen last fall partially because we found a stash of 13 hidden in the barn and partially because I was skeptical that it would work. It did and the results are Ok - good for baking, but not good for much else. Even in baking the yolks don't incorporate well. Then I read on another farm blog that if you mix the yolks in with whites before freezing it's better. Of course, I don't have enough eggs to think about freezing extras, but I thought I'd share the idea while I have eggs on the brain.
