When I (and my friends!) finally completed the goal of the chicken coop this past fall I was elated! Fresh eggs all the time. I couldn't wait for our first egg. And then I realized that we had purchased our chickens too late in the year and that they would probably not start laying eggs until this coming spring of 2013. Well guess what!??! Recently one of our little chicken ladies has started laying eggs! They are pretty small but the yokes are a deep yellow and super rich. Greg made up a batch of friend eggs the other day and sent me a picture. He said they tasted delicious. Best eggs he has had in a long time. (When I get back to the homestead I want to do some side by side comparisons of the store bought eggs to the eggs that are laid by my little flock. I think we will be shocked at how better our home eggs are than from the store.)
Now I know not everyone can have chickens. There is not always the time, room or money. However, you can try to buy farm fresh eggs. And if you can't do that try to buy Cage Free/Free Range. Even though it can cost a little more those eggs will be better. Because they came from happy chickens.
Okay until next time,
Consume More, Buy Less, Buy Farm Fresh.
