Eggs Again!

During the last few months the ladies of the hen house had really slowed down on egg production as the days grew shorter and darker. 

Sunday night we had freezing rain and Monday morning there was a thin layer of ice on everything. Then Monday about mid day it started to sleet. By the afternoon the sleet had quit and the temperatures climbed to the high 40's and the 8 or so inches of snow that have been on the ground for weeks now began to melt.  

Thankfully in the last 2 weeks I am back up to an average of 10 eggs a day from 12 hens. I am so glad because I absolutely can't stand store bought eggs! 

And for lunch .... egg salad made with our own eggs....

And homemade Dill Relish.....

And homemade bread too !!

  1. We ended up with alot of snow from yesterdays storm, on top of the foot thats been out there for a couple months now. Wish I had chickens for fresh eggs, I dont much care for store bought either.

  2. I am trying to convince my husband that we need to get some chickens, some for meat and some for eggs. We did have some years ago for butchering, but I would love to have some egg layers.

  3. I love egg salad sandwiches! Glad your girls are back on the production line.

  4. That looks really delicious. I can't wait till my chickens start laying. They are only 2 months old, so a little more time, but soon.

  5. Please have us all for lunch! Imagine...REAL food!

  6. Have you tried freezing the eggs (out of the shell) when you have a lot - to get you through the slumps? I've heard of this but not tried it.

  7. I too, had to buy from the store. Last week my girls started laying again and I had one scrambled. Oh my! The difference is indescribable.
