A TIP FOR CLEANING EGGS - keeping backyard chickens

I'd like to say that this idea came to me out of the blue, because I'm great at thinking up clever ways to do things and I just instinctively know all about country living (believe me, even after growing up in the country, there are things you forget about!).

Unfortunately for my pride and ego, this was not the case.

Instead, this idea was born from a sink of dirty dishes and a shirt full of freshly-gathered eggs and nowhere to put them.  I had just made muffins the night before and the pan was in the sink. Then, bing! an idea hit.  Put the eggs in the muffin tin cups while washing them so that they don't roll around the sink and break.

Oh my goodness, this is a great little trick - thank you, sink full of dirty dishes.  I knew there was a reason I keep you around!
