    ChickensAreSweet Heavenly Grains for Hens

    Has anyone had this happen to them?

    My boiled eggs from MY chickens don't stink up the house like boiling store-bought eggs. I cannot believe how bad boiling eggs used to make our house smell. And I have had it happen over and over for YEARS!

    Now that we have our hens laying, I am amazed at how the house still smells "normal" when they are boiling.

    The last time we had chickens, I used to buy store-bought eggs for boiling because I didn't know how to wash the eggs. I was too intimidated to deal with the dirt on the egg, and i couldn't bear to have some of the eggs break open while boiling.

    I do mix my own feed. I am wondering if there is a difference because of the feed, or that the store-bought eggs are poor quality.
