Egg-cellent


Our fifteen chickens are laying about 12-14 eggs a day. As you can see they are all shades of brown, with a couple speckled ones and an almost white one. We have even gotten a couple of double yolkers.

The chickens seem happy and content in their coop. We do have a heat lamp in their coop which we keep on during the evening for a couple of hours. There have been enough warm days which they can still get out and explore.

So what have we been doing with all these eggs? Well there were a couple of pound cakes made, omelets, and baking. The extras we sell to people at work, which is great for the baking season.

No we just wipe them off with a paper towel and toss them in the fridge. We were charging 1.50$ which I think is a steal, so far we have made about 23$ which is enough to cover two bags of feed.

Aren't they wonderful? Our chicks just started laying a few weeks ago. We are only getting 2-3 eggs a day now but hope that my the end of January we'll be in good shape with 11 hens. I just love it! Your eggs look great. :)
