Fried


We have no food in our fridge this week except eggs, olives, and condiments. Luckily the girls are laying more eggs each day, so breakfast for dinner can continue. With the increasing daylight, we are back up to 5 eggs a day. We have 11 hens, not including the guineas. Mostly getting browns, but every couple days one of the ameracanas will lay a pretty green one for us.

I want to buy more chickens this spring and can't decide between Arucaunas or Buff Orphingtons or Barred Rock. I have lots of little Olde English Bantams who hide their eggs around the barn, and too many roosters who do nothing but look pretty and fight with each other. I'd love to have those eggs you showed in your lovely photos!

the arucaunas are great fun for the colored eggs. Our buff orphington is one of our nicest hens and the most reliable egg layer. i've always wanted barred rocks, but never had them. wyandottes are fun too, they give the dark brown eggs.

How lucky you are to get those festive green eggs. My ameraucana gives me brown just like my other hens. :-)
