101 Uses for Excess Eggs

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

31. Give beaten up egg to dogs and cats whose coats look a bit out of condition - it's amazing how it gives them a glossy coat in no time.

Do you put it in with their food or on its own? And how much - 1 per cat?

32 . glue - egg white is a very eco friendly glue for light items like paper

33. leather cleaner (using egg white)

34. beauty products - hair conditioner (whole egg beaten) or as a face mask (yolk mixed with water)

35. ive seen people apply a photographic emulsion to an egg and use that instead of darkroom paper

For goodness sake don't waste valuable food cleaning your shoes,hair,toenails or whatever!Smear them with oil ,vaseline or similar and they'll keep for weeks and weeks.

id rather use surplus eggs! but as to using the egg yolk, i think its perfectly reasonable to use it up for such items especially if you've spend a day making meringues or those weird recipies that call for 'yoke of two eggs plus 2 whole eggs'! what do you do with the left over :scratch: does anybody actually follow those recipes ?

vaseline in the hair/toenails aint great :lol: oil though, a tiny amount heated with hot water and rubbed in well works a treat for dry scalps and hair :thumbright:

36. quiche! it freezes well and uses up copious amounts of surplus eggs

I used to give my last cat one egg beaten up and she'd lap it up just neat - she absolutely loved it. I fact all cats I've had have loved beaten egg except the current cat who is remarkably strange about anything that is not cat biscuits - and he suffers more from intermittant coat problems that all the mogs in the past - but you can't win 'em all.

I can't remember whether we gave egg to our old dog c. 30 years ago though so I'm not sure if this is OK for a dog or not, suppose I had better mention that!

I know we're a bit past worrying about it now, but you can cram a surprising amount of courgette in there too! :icon_smile:

OK have you thought about an egg round? Seriously,we used to do this donkeys years ago 2 evenings a week,eggs and our own spuds(we grew about 3\4 acre),and targeted estates where there were a lot of elderly people,who didnt have cars didnt want to carry heavy bags liked fresh stuff etc.Met some really nice people too.Had plans to develop the same thing here before I got sick.It's just a thought,if you dont grow spuds you can buy them off local farms for a few quid a bag.

Guess now you can target estates full of young people just before Halloween :lol: or go to major demonstrations with all your old hopefully smelly ones and sell to a ready market. :lol:

Is that nos. 39 and 40? :iconbiggrin:

41) Use egg white as temporary hair 'spay' As I refused to buy the nasty stuff, & DD2 was in a ballet class run by Attila the Hun, who insisted her fringe was lacqued back, our friend suggested this. It worked a treat.

BTW 1 egg per week per dog is what all my hounds have had. The prison dogs that I puppy walked were given one each every week too, and the odd one as a treat more than that. So long as you don't feed a small terrier half a dozen at a time there will be no problems, assuming your dog isn't allergic or suffering an ailment that eggs could make worse etc.

Most wild dogs, such as wolves & foxes will activly seek out eggs so it is quite a natural part of these omnivours' diets.
