~ Wow , 800 Eggs ~

We got our hens last Feb. , our first egg was laid the last day of May , since then the girls have really produced some eggs. Yesterday the egg count reached 800 in a little over 6 months time. I've read that their egg production would slow down once it got colder , but so far they're still laying at the normal pace and I'm so thankful , all those eggs will come in handy for holiday baking and the potluck favorite , deviled eggs. This morning as I was reading the comments about parsley , Lib mentioned adding parsley to foods to make them more appealing. It got me to thinking , deviled eggs would look and taste great with a little parsley and cayenne pepper or paprika sprinkled on the top , plus look quite festive. I'm looking forward to making some of those holiday eggs.

Woohooooo, that is a lot of eggs in a short amount of time. Those girls have been busy :-) I'm hoping that "maybe" next Spring we'll get chickens but we need to build a good, secure hen house.
