That's Handy

I am in the middle of making meatloaf when I realize I'm out of eggs. Stinkin! I live a long way from the store.

Then I realize...I have chickens.

I'll be right back.


  1. PLUS - your eggs are WAYYYYYY better than the ones at the store! If you ever have extra and want to sell some, let me know. Don and I love fresh eggs.

  2. So how does that work? HOw often do they lay eggs? Can you just go out to the coop and check to see if there are any? Inquiring (clueless :) minds want to know! I LOVE eggs!

  3. LOL! That's hilarious! Been there, done that!

    Erin - yes - I do just go out and check the nest boxes - usually I come back with one or two fresly laid (and still warm) eggs. Technically, a good layer will lay once every 25 or 26 hours. I have a flock of 30 chickens, so - when everyone is mature and laying, we should have quite a few eggs! :)

  4. Dina - I love it! Thanks for sharing the chicken info.

    We have a flock of new ones that still aren't producing. We are looking forward to having more eggs. We get so few right now!
