We have added a layer of Quality Control:

For Christmas our son Matt got Kathy an "egg candler" -- which is a device used to inspect the inside of an egg for defects. Our flock has laid about 700 eggs with only 2 defective eggs. Not bad. Now we can check them and weed out the rare "bad eggs" before they make it to the kitchen. Neat.

We had one egg with no yolk and one "egg inside an egg" like those little Russian dolls.

*****

Carl - Kathy says she will try your "pre-boiling water" technique. She has made one batch of deviled eggs and the filling was the best I have ever tasted. They were really difficult to peel, though. Hopefully your method will yield more deviled eggs around here.

Candeling is automated in the big egg plants, occasionally you may get a double yoke also.

BTW, chickens are tough. Went down to 15 F and we still have all our birds. The cold doesn't seem to bother them. We have some issues keeping fresh water from freezing.

Sweet Wife's brilliant idea was to put a submersible aquarium heater in the waterer bucket and that seems to do the trick.

Did you hang a 100W bulb (non LED) in the coop. We were down to 5 degees last night. They were still cold, just didn't complain. Not that many of them, you should have put them in your garage for the night Then go for an egg hunt in the morning LOL.

Yeah, they raise'em in the cold frozen Northern Wastelands, in desolation surrounded by snowstorms and Yankees (which is half a word). Fifteen degrees ain't nothin' up there.
