    I really enjoyed reading this! The eye mask thing I will be trying! I have 4 hens in our back garden, they are such characters (highly recommend rescuing some ex-batteries, check out BHWT in the UK) and have supplied us with countless eggs! We recently moved them into a bigger home on grass, but now all the grass is gone, they are on the muddy remains, and get quite mucky. I have also noticed they eat an awful lot of the soil! And their poop is very much just soil!!
    I thought the fact about the eggs absorbing surrounding smells was interesting, as we have noticed that recently (the last 2-3 weeks) our eggs have had a rather grassy/muddy taste. Could it be because of their new dwelling?
    I am still researching, but reckon it’s something to do with this.
    Anyway, I’ll be back for more reading soon! Thank you! x

  2. I’ve eaten eggs all my life and had no idea of all their uses. I’ll do better now that you’ve educated me :)

      Miss Crunchy Betty,
      Thank you for great point of view. I do teach my children Christ like values, do you think Christ would eat his chicken if he needed to, yes I believe He would. I don’t assume someone I buy products from should be so confrontational. You know little about me and my life. So step back within yourself and reread your message to a customer because you have an opinion. I have lots of opinions too, but i don’t take them out on everyone I don’t agree with. you seem so loving and compassionate. Yet your words are opposite. being confrontational and argumentative is not a value i teach my children.

        i now see this previous message was from Deborah. sorry for directing it towards you Crunchy Betty. stay crunchy!

      • robyn

        Again deborah your point view is valued. Although get out of your narrow minded world and you’ll see

        as far as abuse towards my children I must say I do feel a little bit bad for yours as they are living a sheltered life of unreality

        Didnt Christ eat all them fish?

        Also, religion was only invented because science couldn’t yet answer our questions. Now that we have science religion and “believers” will die out over the next 5 generations or so.

        Government powers have been pushing and using religion as a tool to control the population since forever. Still happens today. Check out the Brunei wikipage – see the May 2014 update. Check out the current sultan, he is a bit sultry…

        tldr – Also there is no god, your kids will soon grow up and realise this. Welcome to the future where you should be a nice guy even though you’re not going to hell!

          I am a Atheist and cleverer than millions of people…Blah blah blah blah blah
          Why are you all such a-holes? Oh never mind-it is because you don’t have a God in your life….-and nobody tells you what they think of you because they are believers and know that you are just a lost soul and feel sorry for you.
          Poor Stevie-going to hell with his eyes wide open…

        If you are so Christ-like Deborah, why are you taking the lord’s name in vain? That is something i have been taught my whole life not to do because it is extremely disrespectful to the lord. And did you not read the story in the bible where jesus distributes bread and FISH to everyone? it’s life Deborah. Don’t be so quick to judge. I’m sure you’ve also stepped on a spider or two. And i bet that doesn’t bother you near as much as stepping on your bunnies.

    great article but could you please remove the apostrophe in the word CATS (CAT’S DON’T LIE…) it doesn’t belong there.

  8. Remarkable things here. I’m very happy to see your post.
    Thanks a lot and I am taking a look ahead to contact you.
    Will you please drop me a mail?

  9. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    The egg membrane also makes a great bandage for open wounds. My skin on my fingertips splits from the inside in the winter, so I get the membrane from a freshly cracked egg to cover it, and the cracks heal much faster. The membrane can be slippery to work with, but cover the wound and let the membrane dry. It will come off when you wash your hands.
    Also, leave your eggshells out on the counter to dry out and the membrane will absorb carbon monoxide.

  11. This is such a helpful and great tips. I raise chickens but I only use the eggs for cooking and not for any beauty tips. I will let my mum know about this since she is very conscious about her face. This will be a good home beauty tips. Thanks for sharing these information to us.

    My family and I love eggs! and you have inspired me to make the extra effort to find better ones. Occassionally we will get the organic which is uber expensive for daily use like $6.5 for a dozen, yeah. and i was buying some free range ones from the farmers market which did taste good then they started tasting funky like the store so stopped that. incidentally we just opened a pack of eggs today and they were bright light yellow, made me a little sad…..the info in here was really great, Thanks!

    side note, ur cat is so huggable :)

  13. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to
    come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?

    Great work!

    Have you tried washing your hair in egg yolk? I did 3 days ago and it still feels awesome! I conditioned my hair with an ACV rinse too. For the past 3 months I have been washing my hair with baking soda and it was making my hair dry and and my scalp itchy. So I went in search of an alternative and came up with this. Also, I have been brushing my hair with a boar bristle brush to help distribute my natural hair oils. So far so good!
