Home Grown Eggs.

The nation wide egg recall has me, like every other chicken lover, glad we raise our own...It also has me appreciating just how pretty home grown eggs are, with nice strong thick shells and yellow healthy yokes. We are not big egg eaters in this house, so my favorite part of keeping chickens is sharing the eggs with neighbors and friends.

We only have 4 chickens and a rooster (the ducks are boys also)...3 of the girls lay brown eggs and then the little speckled hen lays white ones...I was excited to see this week that all 4 of the girls laying again, even if they are not all laying daily...That is just a matter of time.

I hope yall are having a great weekend and enjoying some home grown eggs.

Oh, how I would love to have a few chickens - I keep bringing it up with Hubby, but then he reminds me that we need to build his workshop, then perhaps a greenhouse & chickenhouse. :)

Enjoy your weekend, and thanks so much for your sweet visit to my little blog!

When I was growing up we always had home grown eggs, they were different colors too, like blue and brown. Thanks for stopping by your blog is just darling!

Hi David and Kelsie
Thank you for visiting My Cozy Corner. I love your blog. Good Job. Yes fresh eggs are the best. We had chickens on our property in the 70's. I would say to the kids "Go get your breakfast" and they would go get a couple of eggs for the french toast. Next week I will have pictures for our home then and now. 42 years is a long time to live in one place.
