~ 24 Eggs on the nest ~
It's that time of the year , when things get overwhelming around here. There's so much to do and so much I want to do , the garden is starting to produce. Last week the garlic was harvested , this week the broccoli is ready to harvest. The weeds are growing faster , the sun is getting hotter and the bugs want to eat you alive , makes gardening a little less desirable. But in the end , the results are worth it. Tonight we're having chicken and fresh broccoli stir-fry over rice. Oh yeah , the organic flour mix I made took care of the worms on the broccoli , it just took a few days.
I think all of the chickens are laying , we've gathered 46 eggs since they started laying two weeks ago this past Sunday. We're getting double yolk eggs from one of the hens , they're so large they don't fit into a carton. The fresh eggs taste so much better than store bought eggs , wish I had got chickens along time ago.
Ms. Guinea has gone broody , she stayed on the nest last night. Yesterday there were 24 eggs in the nest , not sure if she laid another egg yesterday. I closed her in with the cut wood that was nearby , she was still there this morning , so she made it through one night. It takes 28 days for the eggs to hatch , so I'll be watching her closely. I hope she'll be safe , well I need to get off the computer and go check on her. If any of my readers have had success with a broody guinea , I'd love to hear about it.
