From Backyard to Table

You may not believe me but we have been raising chickens in our backyard since August.  They started laying eggs while I was traveling and today I ate my first homegrown egg!  The yolk was electric orange, the shell a light orange sherbert and the taste incredible.  We have two chickens, 1 Brown Sussex and 1 black and white mutt.  I loved her feathers, I didn't care if she lacked a proper family name.  They are super easy to take care of, love to eat out of your hand and will produce 1-2 eggs a day for the next 3 years.  I hope our neighbors like eggs.


  1. so exciting that they are making eggs now!!!

  2. We were thrilled! When I found them today the eggs were still warm, it's amazing!
