They're Back!


Well, let's say they are coming back. After two months of dismal egg production the hens are coming back in. They are even growing new feathers and are starting to look "henny" again.

Recently egg production has bee one, two, three or even no eggs a day, but I've had three days this week where there were seven per day. I have standing egg customers and sometimes they had to wait two weeks for me to fill their orders.

I'm surprised they are laying again since the weather has been cold and rainy and we haven't even hit the shortest day of the year yet.

It looks like I'll need to start printing more carton lables.

Hi,

How does a person tell if eggs from the grocery store are old, compared to the cage free?
Thanks

i think the grocery store ones are always old! I got some cage free natural ones from the store recently and they tasted only minimally different from the regular cheaper white eggs. Yours are in a different category for taste altogether. Perfect!

Darev, they must have read my post today because I only got one egg.

Anon, Eggs that are purchased at most stores are delivered to the store when they are only 4 to 5 days old. The average egg has a 21 day shelf life after it arrives at the store. Then how long does it take you to use them? This is the same with all store bought eggs regardless if they are standard, cage free, organic or any other commercial buzz words they put on the carton. Cage free simply means they are raised is a dark stinky barn. Even free range is misleading. Pasture raised hens is where you want your eggs to come from.

Auntie, thanks hon. You're my best advertising.
