    Great idea. @nancypo frozen eggs will crack and some of the cracks will be so small we can not see them with the naked eye. That can let in bacteria. But as RonP reported above, if you keep them frozen and thaw in the fridge they should be safe, but the yolk texture will be different.

    Beautiful photos. I also enjoyed reading your meditations on chickens etc. I fancy myself a Jane Goodall of chickens of sorts. I think we are quite fortunate to have chickens help us see the extraordinary in the ordinary.

    "Chickens in action" is so funny. Also fun to see Ebony staring in her own video.

    Finally, your famous Bird, stud muffin roo extraordinaire is picture of the week. I enjoyed all the photos of your flock and the story of Bird at PetSmart (what a good boy).

    Herbert came to the right place! Maybe you will get him a couple of hens soon.

    Swans are not particularly friendly, but mostly they get out of my way except for our Sidney Swan during nesting season. Fortunately swans are not very fast on land. But we do need to contend with Sidney when it is time to pinion the cygnets.

    Lucy is a cute addition to the flock no matter what her name ends up being. I hope you will eventually get some adorable itty, bitty eggs.

    Love the pics. I think you hypnotized Annie-belle when you started swaying by her diaper straps, how funny. I think I will have to get some Polish chickens some day.

    Thank you, we got the feeder at a pet supply place on line (I will have to double check which one.) We had a plastic one before from Tractor Supply, but the squirrels chewed through it. Every now and then a squirrel gets trapped in the metal one.

    As a Derp fan, it is great to see her flock. Gullincambe is mighty handsome.

    Your hens are one of my favorite flocks on BYC! I appreciate Gloria even more now that I know she acted as a protector.
