I know what you mean about needing to clean out stuff. The remodeling has give me a good chance to organize and clean out a few things, but still needs a lot of work LOLI have never blown out an egg but I have boiled them slowly for hours on end which I guess dries them out to a point. You then set them aside and they will continue to dry out. You can even paint and put a finish on them then.
Yes Kathy they are pretty. I might get a few quail again this year. Everyone likes the eggs. I started out with twelve last year and got way to many eggs. I gave 4 to my plumber who wanted to start breeding them. Then a couple escaped when the wind blew open the door to their hutch. I ended up with 6 and last fall a weasel dug under their pen and killed them all. I didn't get any over the winter but I might start looking again when I can keep them outside. I know how to blow out eggs but really don't want to. When I moved into this house just over two years ago I came from a house that was more than twice as big. I have so much stuff in boxes that I still need to part with that I really don't want to add to it.
Oh Edie, I LOVE these!!!! Truly beautiful and pretty enough to display year around!!!!! They coloured up so nicely. They also remind me of the little malt and chocolate eggs that you can buy around Easter.....they have changed them over the years, but as a child they were one of my favorites.Do you know how to preserve the eggs for display?
Thank you both. The grand kids love them. Boiled or fried. They like to pop a whole egg into their mouths.
Wonder little eggs.
Wow, they dye beautifully! Thanks 2dogs7cats.
My daughter went specially to an Asian store yesterday to get them. The grandkids love the little eggs. Thanks Kirsten and Ank.
Very nice thanks.
The colours are terrific Edie. And look great on the patterned quail eggs!
