I really think you would like blog as well, if I may suggest it to you. She's gone "back" to the land a bit like you. Great pictures and super recipes.http://www.foodiefarmgirl.blogspot.com/
Hey, great blog Anna! THank you for sharing that with me. I love her bat photos.
Great post Natalie. Poor chickens. I get my eggs from Felice at the post office. Her chickens are lovely and great eggs. Really yellow yolks. Store eggs taste yucky after those.
Hmmmmmm.... buttery chicken!Oh, Chef Nick! Table for two, please!
HWB! You. Are. EEEEEEEEVIL!!!!
Ronna, I love that we have so many good farm connections around here. I know where my eggs, cheese, honey and meat and veg come from!
Thanks for the comments and the link! It's hard to find great eggs in Pittsburgh, but there are a few local farms that supply one or two supermarkets in the city.
We are very much looking forward to collecting our own eggs very soon! Our hens are just about grown up. I know it can be hard to get happy-chicken eggs in the city, so I'm glad you found some, Hungry Canuck.
Knat...I've never heard of battery chickens before, but this is so sad how they're naked and have never seen grass or sunlight. That's awful. I can't believe that's even legal & not fought by Animal Rights folks through legislation. Anyhow, nice video. Your eggs will get bigger as they lay more and more. I forgot that happened, but you're reminding me of things we did too. Oh and the eyes!! Yes, watch that. And jewelry.
Robin, unfortunately hens are kept in these conditions all over the continent. It's a little better when they are allowed free run inside a barn/building, but the cages are just awful. Before our girls started laying, I always bought organic free-run eggs, if I couldn't get eggs from a local farmer.
Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
