Re: Storing/freezing eggs for a shortage?

Thank you, that was interesting! Am I reading the date right, is that typo or was the experiment really done 2 years before I was born!

Well all of this may be for naught, I was chatting up the staff at the feed barn the other day while waiting my turn to load the hay and they all said that the desert temperature swings (especially in the last few years) really messes with the farm animal's dormancy cycles and that you can't expect a normal full moult from your whole flock around here. A few will go here, a few more there and some may not moult for years in a row. Just depends on how long our cold snaps are. So I guess I'll make a point of keeping an an extra couple dozen in the garage fridge and occasionally swap those out as we use them just in case the hens decide to up and have a good moult some time this spring, I'll at least have a ration. LOL

Our chicks have not started laying yet, but this is good info for when they do.
