    Re: 228M eggs recalled following salmonella outbreak

    If you live in the burbs, get a little coop or get a small garden shed (like an 6x6 or 8x6) with a small set of chicken wire and get a few guinea hens or Rhode Island Reds --- maybe 4-5 of them tops, and a heat lamp. I got the garden shed for nothing, the chicken wire was $12 and for nests I used 3 1/2 gallon buckets nailed to the wall on a few 2x4's. Had fresh eggs all the time, and chicken soup during the winter that was out of this world. Guinea hens are a bit gamy and all dark meat so --- not so good on soup but the eggs are good. Since I'm out in the boonies of New Jersey - guineas would pick my lawn clean. Planning on getting some next spring ...

    I am continually reminded of how happy I am I get my eggs, beef, and produce from small, local, organic farmers.

    I bought them only once from a local Agway who usually has a minimum of 10 chicks to purchase, but I got the 5 for $4 each, unsexed. Luckily I had all hens, but when they're small it's difficult to tell what sex they are. If you don't eat the chickens - they'll give eggs for 2 years. When I was a kid we had chickens for a while and guinea's but I was always afraid of the rooster who was a pushy bastard and liked to jump on little kids' head and peck them. Someone told me Tractor Supply carries them as well in the spring but haven't checked it out.

    You can buy them from the hatcheries pretty cheap and they ship them to your local post office.

    Re: 228M eggs recalled following salmonella outbreak

    I have a dumb question. Has anybody in either California or Minnesota heard that you can prevent food-borne illness by washing your food before cooking and eating? DUH!!

    So, eggs have salmonella on them. Wash your eggs, and you won't get sick. BTW, do people in California wash their hands before they eat. You have a lot more germs on them than you do on eggs......

    OMG!! Someone didn't wash his hands before eating, and now has gotten sick. Hurry, we need a government mandated amputation, before this problem gets any worse.

    It's inside the egg - see Ockham's post (#20).

    Oops, that's different.

    Never mind.

    BTW, how can it get inside the egg? Egg is sterile, and membrane should keep germs out.

    Heh, I have almost the exact same story. My dad bought 50 chicks because he had a chicken coop on the farm that was used for nothing. It was my job to feed the chickens. It was not bad when they where little, but once they got to full size, a couple of the roosters got real aggressive and would charge at me when I would go in, which terrified me. We ate them, and I watched my dad chop the heads off those 2 roosters.
