IONIA, Mich., Feb. 19 (UPI) -- A group of eight Michigan farmers said they collected 576,000 eggs to donate to a charity sending food to survivors of the Haiti earthquake.

The farmers gathered Thursday at Herbruck's Poultry Ranch near Ionia, Mich., to crack the eggs and extract the 48,000 pounds of liquid, the Detroit Free Press reported Friday.

The liquid is now en route to Iowa, where it will be dried and combined with other donations to the Good Egg Project for transport to Haiti.
