Fun Fact - Spin An Egg

Our Rhode Island Red Chickens have been producing eggs ever since they turned about 5 months old last September. Sometimes they slow down on very cold or windy days. The eggs are great for eating and sharing. I made homemade pancakes for dinner tonight with a couple of them! 

Another good use for the eggs is hard-boiling. Our dogs get these every once in awhile to help with their coats. Do you know how to tell if an egg has been hard-boiled, without cracking it? Give it a spin !!  A hard-boiled egg will spin easily, while an uncooked egg will wobble or stop spinning more quickly than a hard-boiled one. Give it a try !!
