    Hi to all,

    Two days ago, I picked up 10 organically raised RHode Island Red from our farmer and food provider who is scaling down. It is a great feeling to get up in the morning and walk 40 feet to get your fresh eggs! Here is a pic of our daugther picking up fresh eggs[​IMG].

    [​IMG] Hey, howdy, from California! So very glad you joined BYC. We are the poultry-ist people you could ever find!

    I didn't get into keeping chickens for their eggs, but I sure do appreciate their daily gifts to me! I couldn't ever eat store bought eggs again, and I find it very hard to order any egg dishes in restaurants now.
