CONS: The author assumes that floating eggs = bad eggs. This is 100% false. It simply indicates the presence of air inside the eggshell. If it floats AND smells bad, then you have a bad egg. We have a "hider", and by the time I find her eggs, they are sometimes bad. In any case, if you have a floater & it smells ok, then crack it into a small bowl. Be prepared to run out the door if it is bad. (The stench is unimaginable.) For sure, don't ever try to use longterm storage for floating eggs. We found 9 month old eggs in the fridge that were fine, floating because almost 1/2 their volume had evaporated. They were great refreshed with milk & baked into banana bread. No one got sick and they smelled fine. So there you have it.
I RECCOMEND: Read this book. Buy it if you find it valuable! I did.
Also, buy hens suited for laying if you want layers. You waste money & time with dual-purpose chickens. If you want to eat them, buy meat chickens & raise a batch. Mother Earth News has the lowdown on their website. I like Anconas, banty Welsummers, and Ameraucanas (aka Easter-eggers). The last are more or less mutts, not a true breed, but they tolerate heat & lay a LOT of huge (3.5 oz) eggs. Also, keep your girls for as long as you can. The weight of the eggs is the same year after year, they just lay fewer but bigger eggs as they age. Honestly, it went from about 7 a week to 5, but the total weight remained constant. Keep your girls healthy with a varied, high-protein, organic diet and you will likely have more eggs than you can eat. If one or more stop laying, and it's not from a molt, give her 1 T meal worms twice a day until she returns to laying. No more or her belly will get upset. Have fun with your hens. I know I do!
