It is cold….. below zero cold. So cold, your nose slams shut and freezes tight. Now that is cold! So I was not too surprised when I collected eggs last night to find a frozen one. It happens. But DON”T throw the egg away! They are still good and I will show you how I “save” them.
So, once I got the frozen egg inside I rinsed it off. Then I peeled it. Yes, I peeled it just like a hard boiled egg. The insides of the egg were not completely hard but stayed together as you can see in the photo. Normally I would not put the egg on the counter but I wanted you to see how it looked.
I put the frozen eggs in a zip lock bag and pop them in the fridge to thaw. Once thawed, scrabble those babies up and enjoy or use them in your baking. If you don’t feel comfortable eating them because they were cracked, you can still cook them and give them to a pet, including your chickens! It is a great source of protein for your hens and no, it will not make them egg eaters.
