    Is there anyone else at home who can help you eat them? Or friends, neighbours, family, workmates you can give them to or barter with?
    One of our neighbours has an honesty shop in a ‘spare’ garden shed. Eggs, potatoes, onions, other seasonal fruit and veg if he has surplus. Folk just pick up what they need and put the money through the letterbox!

    Many good eating suggestions above; soufflé, bread and butter pudding, quiche, spanish omelette, spaghetti carbonara, meringues, I think I have seen (but never tasted) orange curd and lime curd too ;-)

    Too Early in season to put in fridge, will have lots of fresh eggs to use
    ... They will keep for 66 days perhaps to 1st Lull
    Freeze Raw Eggs for up to 1 Year - best whipped 1st
    Dehydrate Raw Eggs and grind to Powder
    Boil and Pickle
    Water Glass - Yuck
    Now if you also had a cow... Make Ice Cream and then Meringue
    Just Early for strawberry season or should I say Eaton Mess Season.
    Then you can bake, cook, etc


    If down a lane, not so likely to get farm gate sales, but take them to work...
    You can't sell them graded (Small, Medium or Large, Organic etc) as these are legal standards.
    They can't be washed - reduces shelf life (Freeze any dirty eggs)

    8 egg whites

    Use the yolks for lemon curd.

    I bake and freeze cakes in wedges for OH to tuck into and quiches ... but that doesn't use very many on a regular basis.

    Bake and freeze the baking for later - I do this with quiche, cakes, tortilla...

    Contact local school....
    You could offer them Rotten Eggs for chemistry lessons.

    Perhaps sell them to protest groups...

    You would have to put label on them.

    You could always paint your house and make some door knobs.

    No this isn't off topic or "completely" mad. The first plastic materials were often made from animal proteins and small objects such as buttons, knobs or tobacco pipes could be made from milk, eggs or even blood.

    Anyone who has ever made an "authentic looking" moden reproduction of Orthodox Religious art works will know that egg tempera paint is the paint to use.
