Happy Eggiversary Ladies !

Thank-you for the incredible edible eggs !!

It was one year ago yesterday that we received our first egg from our laying hens. I've tried to keep track of how many eggs the hens have laid , although it's possible I have may have missed a day or two along the way . Our 2009 egg count was 886 eggs and as of yesterday we have collected 694 eggs already this year , so our grand total would be 1580 eggs in one year. During the year I've collected many eggs , small eggs , large eggs and I collected eggs everyday , they didn't stop laying this winter , it slowed down but I always got an egg or two. I am so happy we got our hens , wish we would have got chickens years ago ,the taste of fresh eggs is amazing , completely different from the eggs you buy at the store.

~ Many Blessings ~

You have very happy and healthy ladies. Love the various colors of eggs. Can't wait for my six chicks to grow-up and start laying eggs but that will be a while yet as they are only 4 weeks old.
