absolutely wonderful. yeah, having fresh eggs is definite one draw for me to move to the country at some point. grew up eating fresh eggs and the ones in the store just don't compare, although the organic/free range ones are getting close.

Those are just gorgeous, Suvir. I've been trying to persuade my husband that we should keep chickens – we certainly have the room, and TJ eats eggs for breakfast nearly every day. With good local eggs running close to $4.50 a dozen, it sure would make sense. I feel his resolve breaking down...maybe these pictures will help.

Nice to see you posting again.

Curtis, where are you based? Free range I believe is the key with eggs... organic feed is not everything. We do give our girls organic feed, but they also eat scraps from the kitchen and in the warmer parts of the year, when they can be out and about, they eat any and everything nature can send their way. It is amazing to see their eggs change according to what they consume. Country life is quite wonderful. And it has it's challenges. Charlie my partner, does all the tough work that makes the farm run, the girls (our chickens) happy and lay happily, and also taking care of our geese, goats and alpacas. It is nothing to scoff about or belittle, it is a HUGE change in life, and something one has to consider with gravitas. It is life altering, and absolutely a delight once you begin to live it. But be warned, it is quite a change.

GG, how wonderful to find you here. I owe NW and you a meal at the farm. Life has been hectic, crazy, full of drama (good and challenging) and in the midst of all that, I have been absent. The girls and their eggs keep me happy. Every couple of weeks, as I come back home, it is a joy to come home to their magical gift to us. Charlie really takes great care of them. And they are so beautiful and lively, and their eggs, dreamy!

Come get some eggs from the farm. The first couple of dozens are on us. Bring TJ along, so he can enjoy the girls... maybe once Spring is finally arrived in our Northern locale?

Just begin with a handful of girls, just girls. And you will get more eggs than you need each week once they girls start laying. It is an easy number to take care of and nothing too laborious to handle. And the eggs, more than make up for any effort you put into raising the birds.
