Giveaway: The Incredible Egg Scale

We thought that it would be fun to introduce you to our newest sponsor, www.eggcartons.com, with a giveaway.  Have you ever wondered what size eggs your double yolkers would qualify for?  Have you ever wondered about your bantam eggs?  Well, wonder no more, because this amazing scale will not only answer those questions but can also help you sort your eggs.  This scale can weigh in grams and ounces and it makes a great addition to any household that enjoys chickens.  If you have never been to www.eggcartons.com before, it is definitely a must visit site for chickens.  Based here in Massachusetts, everything that you need and then some is just one click away.  Here are my top 5 products from www.eggcartons.com.

1.  Plastic egg cartons.  This is a beautiful way to showcase the eggs that your girls lay.  With a ribbon tied around the box, this is the perfect gift filled with eggs when going over to a friend’s house for a holiday visit.  You can chose from many sizes of egg cartons and for less than a dollar. Plus the more cartons you purchase, the better your price.

2.  Dried meal worms.  These are fabulous tossed out for your girls as a treat.  They are also a great source of protein during molting.  My girls love it when I bring them freshly made oatmeal on cold mornings with meal worms sprinkled on top.  Delicious!

3.  Vitamins and Electrolytes.  Think of this as Gatorade for your chickens.  We always have two waterers in the girls living space and one of them always contains vitamins and electrolytes.  This is an easy way to boost your flock’s immune system and help booster their defenses with daily stressors.  Just a quick premeasured scoop, a quick stir and you are good to go.

4.  Egg Decoys.  Are your girls just starting to lay and not getting the eggs in the nesting boxes? Have you just  changed over to a new coop and want to encourage the girls to feel safe and lay their eggs in the nesting boxes?  Well, try placing a couple of wooden eggs in your nesting boxes.  This is an easy way to drop them a hint.

5.  The Natural History of the Chicken DVD!  I saw this last year on New Years Day.  This is one of the best movies I have ever seen about chickens.  A perfect stocking stuffer for a chicken lover who has and seen just about everything.  Two thumbs up!

Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

  • OMG, I was JUST looking at this thinking I had to have this. But I'm afraid my husband will leave me if I bring one more chicken shaped thing into the kitchen.

    I also love the tin Fresh Eggs signs they sell. I'm going to have to order one or two of those this spring.

    And I've been voting for your tree. I'll go vote again after I send this.

  • Oh, and I received my calendar in the mail last night. Thank you. I LOVE it!

  • I voted for your Christmas tree this morning. I already subscribe to your blog and have "liked" you on FB. I also liked eggcartons on FB and looked at their site. I like to small egg basket and the poultry carriers.

  • How cute! My kids would love to use this and chart egg sizes. (We just got an itty bitty egg this morning for a new layer.)

  • I just won calendar from you, Thank You, its so pretty! So, I'm not entering this contest, but I wanted to say that I love reading your blogs and I think eggcartons.com is a wonderful sponsor and they have lots of great stuff…I use their little plastic hex egg cartons and people always ask about them. I hadn't looked at their web site in a while and your blog made me take a peek and I saw they have Chicken Christmas Music CD… that would be fun to have to drive people nuts!

    Good Luck with the Christmas Tree Contest, I vote for you everyday because I think it would be a lifelong memory for your kids to get to cook with Cooper !

  • My son saw one of these in a catalog the other day and said how awesome it'd be for our eggs. Then you host this giveaway =o) I think its fate ;o)

  • I like their signs, these especially:

    The Caution signs http://www.eggcartons.com/Caution-Attack-Signs/productinfo/SIGN-ATK/

    The Fresh Eggs for Sale sign (it was hard to decide between this one & the tin one) http://www.eggcartons.com/Fresh-Eggs-For-Sale-Sign-11-x-11/productinfo/SIGN-FE4S/

  • We just fanned them on Facebook (under our farm Rogue Wild & my personal page Shannon Thompson)

  • I'm loving the clear hexagon egg cartons… the ones that hold the half dozen eggs. I think I'm going to buy them! That is the perfect way to give out just a few eggs at a time. Until I have more chickens and we are producing more eggs, I won't be giving away more than a few at a time. I'm a little selfish like that! I LOVE my fresh eggs!!

  • I'm an eggcartons.com fan on FB

  • Also a Tilly's Nest fan on FB

  • Been voting for you and going to vote yet again. Good luck!! I hope you win!

  • thank you so much for a wonderful page to visit on FB and here!
    My wishlist is clear egg cartons so I can see the rainbow color of eggs 🙂
