Don't put all your eggs in the same pot
My routine in the morning before breakfast is to let out the poultry, feed the animals and collect the duck eggs (they are laid in the early morning) and the quail eggs (they are laid the evening before). On Sunday morning I put all 9 of the duck eggs and 14 quail eggs into a pot to take home and them dropped it as I closed the allotment gate. All but two quail eggs were cracked. I fed them to the chickens. Two duck eggs were completely written off. Back home I found 4 of the remaining eggs were damaged. We each had 2 fresh poached eggs for breakfast.
