So most years this time of year the chicken slow down on laying eggs. But not my chickens. I am getting around a dozen per day and right now have 21 plus dozen on hand. A week or so ago I boiled up 3 dozen eggs and then feed them to the chickens. So what does one do with eggs when one gets way to many.

Put up a table at the side of the road by your driveway.
Leave a cigar box for the money.
Stack the egg cartons beside the money box.

old- You always do a lot of cooking. What I did when I was oversupplied with eggs was....I would use freezer zipLoc bags and add 1 or 2 eggs per bag and write on the bag the number in that bag. Put them in the freezer and use them for cooking. If your recipe calls for 2 eggs just get a bag with 2 eggs out of the freezer.

I live out In the middle of no where so all that would do is get them either broken or stolen. In this area one can trust a neighbor about as far as one can throw and elephant

I have the same problem every Spring. Chickens go on a laying frenzy, Summer customers haven't arrived yet. I take several dozen a week to the local homeless shelter.

Plant them. Be careful covering them so they don't break. Don't forget to put a little Epsom salt around them to make the roster comb big and bright colored.
OR you could make pickled eggs. We have a big jar of them around most of the time. They make a good snack.

When granny had too many eggs, she made batches of homemade noodles or other pasta. She dried it & bagged it for later use. Sure were good noodles!

My granny did the same! Used the yolks for noodles and angel food cake with the whites.

I usually have a couple pigs around for butchering. Give each pig 6 eggs a day along with free choice shelled corn. They grow just as fast as the commercial raised pigs that eat expensive recipes.
