    Such a pretty picture!
    Once a week I feed scrambled eggs to my dogs and boil up some for the chickens. I crush the boiled eggs, shell and all and feed it back to the chickens. They love it and that usually takes care of any extras that accumulate over the week.
    NO MORE go under broodies or in the bator. I am singing the "here a chick, there a chick, every where a chcik chick" song. [​IMG]

    I would love to have too many. I have five laying hens but only 8 eggs in the house. One of my Polish stopped laying about five days ago, so I actually have four laying. I don't know what is up with her. When I do have a surplus dozen, there is always someone asking if they can have them.
    I raised several chicks that are 10 weeks old now, but only two of them turned out to be girls. I have four roosters now that are going to end up in my freezer. I think I need to put a lock on the fridge door so people will stay out of my eggs!!
    I care for 31 chickens, 20 of them are Cornish X, four are roosters, two are too young to lay, one is a free loader and only four that produce eggs. [​IMG]

    LOL!! This actually is an egg basket..the golf ball basket is hanging out on a hook at the coop, lol!!! Hey, it's practical!!!

    I remember thinking I would never have enough eggs to use two days in a row!! That sure changes after they get started!!! [​IMG] Some people have 3 and 4 dozen every day!!!..not me, I only have 12 chickens, but some folks collect that many eggs...I already bake brownies and cakes like crazy..that many eggs and that many more sweets and we would be a family of water buffalos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ooo, I'm so excited to have my first eggs, and MY CHICKS AREN'T EVEN BORN YET! We ordered ours, born July 15, pick-up from the Co-Op July 16. We're actually driving 3 hours today to go and buy some poultry supplies, sadly our local stores don't sell anything really apart from some feeders, and food. We're buying some egg baskets, cartons, leg bands, probably an incubator, and some other fun things [​IMG] It's just killing me, the amount of time left until we can move into the farm and get started on fixing the coop, and the fencing.
