Why Our Eggs Taste So Good

29The farmer’s market has been closed since early December but we’ve continued to sell eggs throughout the cold season.  We put our phone number on every egg carton and our customers have been coming to the farm to buy them.  One customer asks for 5 dozen every time, we don’t usually have that many available.  They are so tasty because we feed them a high protein chicken food , cracked corn and all of our veggie table and garden scraps.  They love stale bread, too.  They run up to me every morning to see what tasty treat I’ve brought them and jump up to take it out of my hand.  A person with bird phobia would probably freak out with chickens jumping up at them but I love it.

    We had three ‘escape’ yesterday so I bribed them with grapes to get them back to their safe place. Ours go completely crazy for grapes. Truly. It is a sight to see!

    Look at those multi colored chickens! Do you have a breed that’s a better layer than others?

    The Rhode Island Reds are more consistent layers but the Americaunas lay larger eggs. It’s a good mix to have on hand.

    How long will the fresh eggs be good for? We never had chickens, but we did have geese.

      We have geese on our pond right now, Helen! I had to look up how long eggs are good for. eggsafety.org says 4-5 weeks after their pack date. However, I saw someone on Doomsday Preppers eat 9 month old eggs that they had rubbed olive oil on and stored in their garage. 😛
