Bears, we have lots of them. Where I'm bowhunting I got on trail cam last yr mamma and three cubs, there is a big male wandering that area also. Also have them in the woods behind my house. The DEC keeps expanding the bear hunting area, 15 yrs ago there was no bear season here. There is so many bears the DEC has talked about allowing baiting and dog running like they do in other states/Canada. The bear harvest keeps getting greater every yr but they say the population isn't in check, it's expanding.
Chicken girl 15, we have five also, good thing they like eggs lol. The three youngest have to feed and gather eggs daily with me, they expect it. They have broken some, good thing the girls make more every day
. If they are salvageable I feed them to the dogs.
I have a kale omelet a few days a week, the wife and I, the kids don't like green stuff in their eggs Lol. Mushrooms and swiss makes them so much yummier!
Our kale has been growing great all yr, still doing great. A much better green, though not as tender as, spinach. We never grew it before, always will for now on.
Our younger ones love hard boiled eggs, will eat all of them... I had some pickled eggs awhile ago kids insisted they wanted them, NOT these, I pickle them in jalapeño brine Lol. So I made a new batch just in a salt vineger brine. The 5 and 7 yr old girls love them, 3 yr old boy, 'no like pickle eggs!'.
