Great balls of fire!Got our first 2 eggs! Yipee!!
Funny, they are only about 80% as big as the fake, ceramic eggs we had in the boxes, but weigh more. The first egg outweighed them by 5 grams, second(44 g.) by 10 grams. Thick shells, I think they're getting enough calcium. Wife says they were delicious!

Not uncommon for them to slow down in winter but yours just started so they might keep going full tilt.3 more since I posted!
Rigged them a light & timer that gives them 2 hours in the mornings, 3 in evening - solar powered. Solar Chicken - the bandNot uncommon for them to slow down in winter but yours just started so they might keep going full tilt.
Have a system to date and rotate stock and a couple people to give away or sell the extra to.
Old timers rule of thumb says they'll last 6 weeks on the counter or 6 months in the fridge but that's if you do not wash them. Shells are porous and they're laid with a natural coating that's antibacterial and helps to seal the shell.
If you have a few that look unappetizingly shitty, or you just wash them for aesthetic reasons, a coating of mineral oil helps get the shelf life back.

My daughter bought us a cool little egg storer that spirals down, so the oldest egg is always at the bottom. Yeah, out on the table for now.
We'll eat all the whites - cook up the yolks and feed back to them.
