Maybe its just me, but my eggs don't taste like some I've had from various farms. I decided to get chickens, I have 7, as of now I'm only getting 2 eggs a day. Is it something in the feed, or something you feed them, that gives the eggs that great taste. I told my girlriend how good a farm fresh egg tastes, and now that I've got my own chickens, the eggs taste like they are storebought. Has anyone else had this issue? I've got the feed, oyster shell, grit, fresh water, I feed them grass sometimes, they eat bugs. I did buy these 7 hens at 10 months old, I had 23 I was raising production reds and cinnamon queens, started off with the brooder, and then had them in their coop for a month, and one night a dog got in and killed them all. I was so mad, I miss them actually, these 7 I bought, don't have the character and are kinda of boring, and they don't like personal contact, I've tried to hold them, sit with them, get them used to me, but they are standoffish. I'm seriously thinking about getting rid of these seven(do hens taste good!!) 2 production reds, 2 black astra, 3 buff orphingtons. I think I'm going to get chicks again and start over. Cause I know that introducing new chickens that will be smaller, those hens will definitely pick on them. Kinda sucks I paid $8 a piece, one expensive chicken meal. Are these chickens edible?
