No wonder eggs are a symbol of spring!

Happy Spring Equinox! With the lengthening of daylight, our hens have really picked up production. It’s another sign that nature is awakening! Our hens are back in business! We are bringing back buckets of eggs each day – and have convinced Evelyn that she can listen to an audio-book and clean eggs at the same time. Our “egg sink” is overrun with eggs. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, buy them as gifts, and stock up for Easter. Farm fresh eggs can last up to 3 weeks unrefrigerated and about 3 months in the fridge. Also – I’ve found that the older the eggs are, they better they peel when hard boiled.

When the whole avian flu issue came up, and farms were having to “dispose” of all of their birds if any indication of Avian Influenza in their livestock, we decided it was time to take our farm’s egg production a little more seriously and start hatching out our own flock. Over the winter we got an incubator! The girls have been trying to select eggs from the hens with good personalities and pretty feathers, who may be mating with one of our two of our preferred roosters (FancyHandsome – seen below or Sir Stupice (stoo-pee-chay) not pictured).

It only take 28 days for the eggs to hatch – and it’s pretty exciting to see them emerge from the shell, wet and shaky… only to turn into little yellow fluff balls zooming around. We now have about a dozen chicks in our laundry room, enjoying the cozy heat and plenty of food and water. After they feather out, we’ll put them in the barnyard to join the flock of hens. We can’t tell which ones are hens or roosters for a few more months – but let’s cross our fingers that we’ll have more hens!
