I am sure it is. Your friends chickens probably are able to eat bugs... their preferred diet and thus get plenty of calcium from the insect exoskeleton. These free range eggs taste better too. It IS all about their feed.

Trans port eggs in a tube/tubes 3 eggs per tube. 3 eggs required for 1 meal. Protein is good for us, I like eggs. Use sturdy mailing tubes. Eggs are fragile when their sides are pressed. Try breaking an egg lengthwise(top to bottom) in the palm of your hands. It's very, very hard to do. Most folks can't do it.
I never thought of that, but you're absolutely right. If the eggs were stored end to end, you would only need to armor the sides to prevent squeezing them. Maybe a cut up wrapping paper roll with JB Weld around it? If you hadn't already guessed, I recently came upon a gross supply of JB Weld and have no idea what to do with it except smear it on my gear.

I have heard that backpackers have put eggs in shells, end-on-end, inside a Pringles can.

I haven't tried it.

Ahhhhhhh, now we understand why!!!! :D

Sell some here and then on ebay. Might get some sales generated to buy some gear.

Make some molds to make your own plastic/rubber worms for bass fishing. :geek:

I took a commercial dzn. egg carton that i found at a yard sale on my recent hunting trip. we bought a dozen extra large brown eggs and I could not believe it when they fit perfect in the egg case. The best part is the case says "Made in the USA" ;) :DB:

I agree, much tastier and less expensive. Homeless folks need to be taught the value of eggs. They can be stored without refidgeration for 2 weeks. Plenty of time to consume them :)

Good point oops. Farm fresh is better, right outta the chicken, no washing. Binladen had "free range" chicken eggs. Did you see the chicken in the yard in one of the videos they had on tv today?
