Short piece on ABC new on TV just now - world's oldest woman just celebrated her 117th birthday in Italy. And said part of the secret to a long life is eating two raw eggs a day. Don't know if I wish to hit 117, though she looked well and cheerful enough. Also don't know if I wish to make a raw-egg milkshake twice a day. (We used to have them often when we were little kids - "egg flips" were a treat.)

I had egg flips too. They were standard 'convalescent' treats.

117 X 375 x 2 =87,75 eggs

365.2422 days in a year X 2 eggs per day = 730.4844 eggs per year X 117 years = 85466.6748 eggs.

Oops - I did that sum in my head - thanks RB

OK what about this?

! chook x 4 eggs/week x 3 years (guestimate here)

4 x 52.1775 x 3 =626.1299

626.1299 / 85466.6748 = 136.4999 chooks

not really that many chooks in her lifetime
(used calculator here)
