I am getting about 4 eggs a day now. Dunno what to do with them all! Have a quiche in the freezer already. 2 doz eggs in the refrigerator. And I am learning to can. Our pear and apple trees produced a lot this summer.
I went to feed & clean this-morning...wowsers, feathers everywhere...looked like someone exploded!...hahaha....I guess the molt has begun...geesh...only getting 3 eggs from 5 chickens now as it is....i don't want those numbers depleting....
Ginger and Cordon are "acting" as duel mothers for the 9 weeks old chicks, but...they aren't really doing too much in the way of protecting or feeding and such...so, still waiting for them to get their egg-system going again.....
As to "what to do" with the extra eggs..you can freeze them. Get yourself some old icecube trays..crack eggs into them, freeze..once frozen, pop out and place into storage bags...there you go!.....and there is also what Blarney said..pickled eggs!!....
**We had taken a trip to Canada years ago...it was the biggest, clearest sky I have ever witnessed....awesome night..sooo many stars....

Yes, indeed, you can hear the Great Horned Owls in the woods just above our coops, still dark out and my youngest birds all out. Arrrrgh! I'm taking this as a sign to stop, have coffee out back with my babies and watch the sun rise.
been hearing the owls here too.....can tell the cooler weather is coming, well..is here!
Hope you enjoyed your coffee and quiet time

They were here at seven, and the guy asked if I had been in bed. If he hadn't gone right on talking, I would have done "here's your sign". He was complaining about the name of the town. Behind my house is one town, about a mile down another... It was not an argument I wanted to have, but he apparently thought I named the towns, and placed my house wrong.
In any event, I now have oil. Woo hoo!
so glad to hear you have HEAT now!!! and your G-babies are little nutters!!
