Hi! My name is Naomi and I'm 10 and my sister's name is Evelyn and she is 8 and we are Botany Bay Farm's egg washers! Want to come egg washing with us?
First we walk (or ride our bikes) down to the shop to the egg washing room. When we get there we get all of our supplies out before we start washing eggs! We wash about 125 eggs a day! For one basket it takes us about 1 hour. We wash eggs everyday (except Sunday), so we have double on Monday! I do the scrubbing part and Evelyn does the drying and sticking in egg cartons part. When we are done washing eggs we put them in the refrigerator to keep them fresh.
There are down sides to egg washing and one of those is, chickens don't stop laying on Sundays and Holidays! :) But there is a reward for egg washing! Evelyn's and mine is that we get to listen to Bible stories while we wash eggs!
