    Default Egg Trivia

    Did you know?

    * A hen requires 24 to 26 hours to produce an egg. Thirty
    minutes later, she starts all over again.

    * The egg shell may have as many as 17,000 tiny pores over
    its surface. Through them, the egg can absorb flavors and
    odors. Storing them in their cartons helps keep them fresh.

    * Eggs age more in one day at room temperature than in one
    week in the refrigerator.

    * White shelled eggs are produced by hens with white
    feathers and ear lobes. Brown shelled eggs are produced by
    hens with red feathers and red ear lobes.

    * To tell if an egg is raw or hard-cooked, spin it! If the
    egg spins easily, it is hard-cooked but if it wobbles, it
    is raw.

    * If an egg is accidentally dropped on the floor, sprinkle
    it heavily with salt for easy clean up.

    * During the spring (vernal) equinox (about March 21), it
    is said that an egg will stand on its small end. Although
    some people have reported success, it is not known whether
    such results were due to the equinox or to the peculiarities
    of that particular egg.

    * Occasionally, a hen will produce double-yolked eggs
    throughout her egg-laying career. It is rare, but not
    unusual, for a young hen to produce an egg with no yolk
    at all.

    (I wondered about this ;o))
