Re: Egg Picking



I never mix up the eggs cause I pick them and put them right into a cup.
After I do that I put the mops back in the tanks and wipe the work aread
off.

PS I use a white 5 gallon bucket cover to collect eggs :) . It works well
and any eggs that fall off are easily visable. Also they have a lip around
the edge so any water still retained in the mop don't get all over. I also
sometimes use a orange cover and it work's just as well.
