No, but I break my eggs separately into a cup before adding them to the rest of the main ingredients. That way, if there was a rotten egg, I could throw it out, before it is included in the main ingredients, or I would have to start from scratch. That would be annoying !!!
I don't check my eggs in water, I check the Used by date on the box. Luckily I went to boil the egg in the photo and it floated, so I threw it out and got another one. I am glad I wasn't making a omelette or cake! It made me wonder if I should check them from now on!
Something is wrong with them. I had one put down because she was sick. Then another got her head caught and ended up with a limp. Although she got better, there is now a third that has a limp! My goodness, this has never happened in the past!
My neighbour rescued some battery hens but one got ill and had to be put down. . . . makes you wonder. My chooks from thirty years ago were hale and hearty and only ever needed worming. My neighbour's chooks are revelling in their new found freedom. So cute.
Yes, actually. She's got an infection. I've got to take her to the vet. I'm afraid he's going to tell me she has to be put down. There is a surgery I can do at home, but I don't think I can do it. >.< I don't want to put her down. FML.
Aw< vee, that's sad. What about some good old fashioned advice from a chook farm? Vets only do six weeks on chooks and that covers all birds. If they want to go any further they have to specialise. Sometimes the old wisdom works well. I just wish I could remember more about the foot thing :((
It's ok, Rice. I appreciate it. Unfortunately, I had to have her put down. The vet said she was in really bad condition. I feel like crap for not having her looked at earlier - poor girl. It looks like another one has copped it too. She is malting. >.< I just don't understand. We have done nothing different, and this is happening all of a sudden and just recently.
To be honest with you, Rice. I don't think they've been wormed. I didn't even know that was a thing...my husband says that his grandfather - whose hens these were - never did that and the hens were always fine. I'll take this one to the vet and ask him for his opinion...?
I go through all the cartons to get the one with the furthest use by date. I also break them before consuming them or adding them to a recipe. I am awful with eggs . . . if I even think there is doubt, I just can't eat it. I should go back to having my own chooks.
