Four Egg Day

 I didn't hear from everybody today but it was real close.

Another good thing about the warmer temperatures and longer days is that the girls have finally started laying eggs again. At Christmas, I had to break down and buy some at the grocery store!

The Gold Laced Wyandottes, Marsalla and Eggbirda were just taking a winter break. The younger Austrolorps, Diana, Florence and Betty are seven months old now and just starting to lay.

If the girls keep this up, I'll have to start giving eggs away soon. I have a couple of friends in the area who are going to start keeping bees in the Spring. What do you think, could we trade eggs for honey?

Omlette, anyone?


  1. I'LL Take all the eggs you want to give away!!! I'll pay for them even. They are wonderful for baking.

  2. They are great for baking and everything else. We ate store-bought eggs this morning and it was obvious, even to The Music Man. Store bought eggs have flat, yellow yolks. (Try saying that fast five times) Since they are really fresh, my eggs have yolks that are more orange and yolks that stand up from the whites.
