This weekend one of my projects was to clean the remaining eggs from Sally our emu hen. This is about half of her production this last fall and winter. I scratch and poke a hole in one end of the egg then scramble the insides with a straw and shake the egg over a bucket to catch the yolk and whites as it falls out of the egg. Each egg equals approximently one dozen chicken eggs. No I do not eat them. I give some to the dogs fresh out of the egg then freeze the left overs to put over their food later. Yumm! I sell some to my friend Cindy who has a dental tool to etch them. Each emu egg has three colors to etch out. The dark green on the outer layer, then a light green on the second layer and last there is a layer of white. Some people can make some beautiful pictures on each egg using the natural colors. I felt over them!
