The princess and her eggs

We’ve been working hard keeping the weeds at bay and getting the garden going this spring, but apparently neglecting the egg collecting. I just gathered what I can only assume is a new record — 26 eggs. Must have been a pretty uncomfortable pile for our setting hen to be trying to keep warm.

Oh, you guys are back to laying eggs?

14 eggs in the coop today. Guess I haven't checked in awhile. I think that's called a Lazy Farmer's Dozen.

The Chickens are Laying Again!

Alicia texted me this morning while I was out saying “2 eggs in the coop today”, which is exciting because they haven’t laid since October or so. Maybe it was that huge full moon last night. When I got home Robbie and I went out to collect the bounty and pose for this picture. By that time there was a third egg, so spring has officially arrived.

(Note: Right after snapping this photo, Robbie decided to drop the eggs on the ground, and one broke, so we’re back down to 2 eggs.)

Breakfast of champions

Our chickens are back in production mode after a short period of setting (sitting on the eggs to incubate them).  Additionally our asparagus patch continues to emerge little by little.  This morning we had enough of both of these farm treasures to make a delicious breakfast.  When we get our pig we can add some bacon and make it a true farmer’s breakfast.
