While my friend Rusty was visiting here, she got to meet the "girls" but also to see my comedy routine of trying to balance buckets, feed, treats and eggs back and forth to the coop. Since they are laying a few eggs at a time, we do not need to use an egg basket yet....I have been carefully carrying them from the coop to the cabin (for someone who can not walk and chew gum at the same time it is quite a feat).
Rusty being very clever made me two aprons for collecting eggs - hence the "Egg-pron" !!! They made up of fun poultry theme fabrics: retro-chickens, egg beaters, and chicken wire and have deep pleated pockets for safe keeping and carrying of eggs. (I just filled the pockets with 9 eggs prior to writing this).
