a sampling of our family life which includes urban gardening, schooling and outdoor adventures in Missouri
What was the deal with this? Since you know a name and he's on a leash I take it he is safe at home with his family?Lorie
really cute...I was wondering how the hens were doing...are they making a lot of eggs?
Lorie, you're referring to the dog post, aren't you? :-) We had Snickers on a leash out front for awhile and then let him roam, while we waited for the owner to return our call, in the backyard where he escaped. After he escaped the owner called us back and said he gets out of their yard all the time. However, we haven't seen him again our way.Julie, we're getting about 3 eggs a day. We actually lost 1 hen (Jess left the coop door open accidentally, and we think 1 hen got out and since our dog was in the yard, she had a fun toy for a while...) so getting 3 eggs from 3 hens each day is great!
How do the eggs taste?
The eggs taste unbelievably great. I had to purchase eggs from the store over the Winter, and even local, organic eggs didn't match our "straight from the backyard" goodness. A fried egg has never tasted so good. :-) I should really post about the chickens! I guess they have become our norm and are no longer a novelty.
Yes, post about the hens and also when they will become ahem, dinner.
Jesse and I have already discussed this...I prefer we not eat the chicken meat once they are done laying. They are a pet! I try to be frugal, but that would be going too far for me.
