Show your pride with clean and healthy eggs

Well winter is here in full force and luckily our girls are all still laying very well.  We have been taking all steps necessary to ensure they stay healthy and happy, and in turn, they have continued to provide us with the same great tasting eggs. 
"There is nothing better than fresh eggs!" as Manna Pro states on their containers of Wipe 'N Wash egg cleaning towels, and how can anyone disagree!?

Manna Pro has been dedicated to providing some of the best products for backyard flocks since 1985. They understand most of us are committed to a more sustainable lifestyle, and continue to produce their products with as little strain on the environment as possible.

Recently they had sent Our Little Coop a bunch of products to sample and giveaway to our readers. We are always very thankful for that!  
Here is what we received: 

Manna Pro All Natural Egg Cleanser

Manna Pro Wipe 'N Wash Egg Cleansing Towlettes

Mann Pro Omega Egg Maker

The All Natural Egg Cleanser is one of the best alternatives to harsh detergents currently on the market and is very simple to use.  Place your eggs in a large bowl, cover with approximately 1 gallon of warm water and add about 2 capfuls of the Egg Cleanser.  Carefully agitate the solution for about 10 seconds  by moving the eggs around and let sit for 10-15 minutes. The all natural cleanser seems to dissolve the caked on crud off of the eggs.  From there you may simply rinse and store in the refrigerator.

If you want your eggs looking their best proceed to the next step.

The Wipe 'N Wash egg wipes can be used by themselves quickly and conveniently.  One towel can clean a dozen eggs but I have been able to clean up to 2 dozen before discarding.  These wipes are made with recycled paper and a natural blend of plant-derived cleaners, and as stated on their package, reveals the natural beauty of your eggs.  

I usually wash anywhere between 3-4 dozen eggs at a time in the all natural cleanser and follow up by gently scrubbing with these wipes.  Our regular customers are alway so amazed at just how clean and beautiful our eggs always look with minimal effort on our part.

Beautiful eggs start on the inside.  Thanks again to Manna Pro and their all natural Omega Egg Maker supplement, you can be sure you are providing your girls with a rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids and all the vitamins and minerals they will need to stay healthy and produce very healthy and delicious eggs.  

As I stated, this is a supplement and should be used as one.  The directions are pretty straight forward for either mixing directly into the layer feed or using as a top dressing.  I accomplish the later by sprinkling about 4 tablespoons over the top of their feed.  This way freshness can be almost guaranteed by keeping the remanded on the Egg Maker sealed in the original Manna Pro bag.

  1. I was always told that if you wash eggs, you leave them open to bacteria entering them, as you wash away the goodness on the outside of the egg. Is this true or are these wipes magic?

    1. Great question Leah! We don't wash the eggs from our backyard chickens until we are ready to eat them. At that point, we also put them in the refrigerator.

    2. THAT is what I do Kevin. I hand eggs to people and educate them on washing them. They need to be put in the refrigerator after washing and used in a reasonable amount of time. Once the bloom is washed off they will not last as long. It is seldom mine are dirty as the girls are good about using the nest boxes. But on muddy days after rain the girls have dirty feet!!
      I also washed some eggs that I was going to incubate. They were very dirty. I simply could not put them in the incubator THAT dirty. And they did not hatch but died in the shell. I think bacteria got to them from the cleaning.

    3. I have heard similar results when pre rinsing eggs before hatching. Thank you for commenting! Cheers!

  2. If you want to protect the damages caused to the mattress due to persistent dampness, then it would be suitable to seek professional mattress deodorizing assistance from the local carpet cleaning service, and get rid of all such worries.
