The hens are doing wonderful, which is a blessing! They seem to like what we’ve been feeding them, naturally — fresh greens and veggies and kitchen scraps and squiggly creatures/bugs from the garden. We get about an egg a day from each hen.  We even have some surplus to sell!

It was quite a shock when we tried using the eggs for the first time — cracking the egg, I mean.   The darn thing wouldn’t crack… compared to those wimpy transparent egg shells from the grocery store, this one was like armor! Had to tap it hard a couple times!    I assume that our hens ARE getting enough calcium. Even though the bantam eggs are smaller than regular, free range eggs they aren’t THAT much different see »
