Easter eggs 2020
Our chickens are laying about five eggs a day, so we blew the yolks out of these eggs (by piercing both ends with a small hole, and blowing on one end over a cup), and the insides of the eggs can be used for food, while keeping the shells mostly intact for decorating.
We mixed a few colors of craft paint and each of us painted two or three eggs. The shells would have just gone to compost, but we had a little fun with them :)
Next time I would like to try some of the natural dye methods, using turmeric powder, beets or blueberries, to see what colors the brown eggs will give with the natural dyes.
