I don’t know a great deal, but I do know that Avian Influenza has now been found in Wyoming. I need to do more research, but basically, it can cause illness and death in wild and domestic birds. Well. That’s not good.
I rely quite a bit on my hens. If they end up catching it and dying, I’ll sure miss my fresh eggs!
I’ve decided to try various ways of preserving them.
First… I’m going to freeze some. These will be ones I use in baking.
It’s springtime and time to clean my chicken coop… giving them fresh bedding would help keep my eggs cleaner, but until I do, I’m taking these dirty eggs and washing them well. I then crack them into a bowl.
I go ahead and scramble them up with a fork.
Two eggs fit nicely in a snack ziplock bag.
Labeled and frozen, I’ll feel better having a stockpile of my eggs on hand should my tiny flock catch the flu! I’m also trying some other ways to preserve my eggs, and I’ll share those with you as well.Find me here!
