Older eggs are easier to peel because they coagulate
quicker not like blood but like hormonal membranes which are less hardy.

If you try and fry an egg just laid- it will resist temperature to the extreme wheras an older egg from an older chook will fry quickly and go hard quickly.

I’ve taken to eating eggs for breakfast. I normally get store-bought ones but my dad has a sweet hook-up for free-range from out near Royalla.

I’ve noticed with the Royalla ones that when I cook them in my egg steamer the egg white sticks to the sides of the egg compared to the store-bought ones which have a kind of second skin developed which makes peeling them a lot easier.

What causes this?

Miranda come by on Saturday if you can and get some eggs. If the whites do not perfectly hold together I will not only give you your money back but invite you out on our farm to pick up a dozen laid fresh on the day eggs for free.

The white when cracked open should appear as clear jelly- firm and upright as opposed to wet and runny.

I don’t know how fresh eggs are from the Markets or supermarkets. The shells are purous and eggs are somewhat perishable. They should be refidgerated. Yet, in most supermarkets they are not. They also often keep them near fertilisers and chlorine which can’t be good for the eggs flavour.

Are your eggs fresh enough to poach? Because I’m sick of buying ‘fresh’ free range eggs from the markets (etc) only to find they fall apart when poached. A truly fresh egg will remain nice and plump when poached. A stale one will simply fall apart in the poaching water.

Guess I should stop whinging and get my own chooks, right?!

The radio program goes on at 5:30 am but yes I feel like a bit of an idiot now.

please do! Chooks are great. I have been missing the annual Canberra chook show the last few years, to my annoyance.

And you should do that interview. Get the word out on free range, and where you are selling from. The ABC radio listeners are your market, for sure. They buy our apples, too!

Still I think I’ll take some pics of my small brood
and post them up because I’m extremely proud of them.

I heard about the girls at Burra today from an abc radio reporter doing an interview with a friend of mine about the horse flu. She offered to interview me but I declined with so few chickens. Apparently the others in Burra have 1000. I’d be lucky to have 50 dozen per week.

Congrats on the girls laying. I’ve been buying eggs from a lady at work whose hens are young and laid all through winter. Same price as yours. The Burra girls will be getting their bums into action when it warms up, so can also get them at the Oaks Estate Groggery.

You know, I really cannot see why people can’t sell produce and stuff on the side of the road, without licences and things. Why can’t someone set up a ute and a sign? Why must they buy a licence? Why make it hard for normal people to sell their things, and for normal people to buy them?

I don’t know a flower guy on the Monaro – only around Hume- is that where you mean?

What if you moved onto the Monaro Hwy at Hume?? Somewhere near the flower guy would be good.

Ideally I would like to attract co-op buyers buying in bulk and I could then deliver free to the door.

cb60 7:32 pm 04 Sep 07

Thanks for your response.
It’s where I’ve been selling chook poo and people are already expecting eggs there. It’s really the closest point from our property away from shops
to be fair.
If you have any suggestions for more suitable areas please let me know.

I’m sure the eggs are nice but better location advised. Bit of a detour on my Saturday morning and rubbish blowing around is not conducive to the purchasing of eggs.
