    I'm using up my very last white store bought egg today! [​IMG]

    It's headed into a batch of homemade egg noodles along with a few of 'the girls' eggs.

    Bye - bye store bought eggs ..


    Hazel's eggs are about a large now, but Clover's are still about a Medium and she's been laying the longest .. small chicken = smaller eggs I guess. Oh well that's okay, they all taste good! [​IMG] Olive is still holding out and being a stubborn hen, no eggs from her yet. [​IMG]

    Congrats! I was so happy when I went shopping this past weekend and I didn't have to buy a dozen eggs. My girls have finally reached a pace I can live with, lol. I'm getting about 3 to 4 eggs a day from the ones that already laying, and that's plenty for us for now. I am excited for you, no more store bought eggs! Aren't yours so much more tasty than the store bought? Mine sure are! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yeah no more eggs from the store. I have 5 dozen in the fridge right now. The girls are laying 9-12 eggs a day right now. Not everyone is even laying yet. I give a dozen away and almost get another dozen the next day. I love teasing my kids at the grocery store and ask them if we need to buy some eggs. They look at me like I must be nuts.
