We came home from vacation to find the nesting boxes had been used. Since then we have been getting 2-3 eggs a day. Sweet. With this comes the question that until now has been hypothetical.
"What the hell are we going to do with nearly 2 dozen eggs a week?"
The answer is, of course, egg based meals. I tried my hand at a quiche tonight and was pleasantly surprised when I cracked one open. Sweet.
Home grown eggs really are all they are cracked (no pun intended) up to be. The yolks on these things are nearly orange. The one thing I was not prepared for was the shells. These things are TOUGH. Anyway, dinner was delicious and we are excited about having a ready supply of farm fresh eggs.
