Those of us who live on farms know that springtime equals regular laying by the hens. It's hard to recall the time just as we were heading into winter, when eggs were as scarce as.....HEN'S TEETH! (Did you ever see a chicken that had teeth?? Me, neither!)
The only thing we don't want, in the way of an egg reduction program, is an egg-eating chicken. We've had our share. So, now, MM carefully monitors the egg production, visiting the hen house several times throughout the day, collecting those eggs laid, and encouraging the sitters to finish up!
It's those little hens pictured last June...the ones we raised from biddies, now in full production. Lovely, medium-sized brown eggs. I think the white ones look anemic. I know they're just the same as brown ones, but browns are better somehow. Don't they taste better? At least they look "farmy."
So we do have egg on our faces! And I hear another egg cackle as I write this. Time to go check the coop!
Have a restful weekend! Thanks so much for visiting during this past week! It's supposed to rain a bit on Saturday and Sunday. We still can use the moisture, so we won't fret!
See you Monday!
