This morning I was gifted with an egg from one of my very young Delaware pullets.(young girl chicken) She laid a very small evenly brown egg. Hopefully she will keep this up!
This past weekend I went to the farmer's market in Raleigh to get some veggies and pecans. I mentioned to the lady with all the pumpkins/squash that I had chickens and would be happy to take any bruised/unsellable produce from her. I didn't expect anything but was VERY thrilled when I left with over 40 lbs of greens, squash, and pumpkins!! My girls have a lot of good eating to do.
Looks like homemade chicken soup will be next on the blog recipes. I have a racist rooster (he attacks all the white chickens) and another rooster will be heading to the stock pot this week. Hopefully it gets a little nicer outside so I can do it today...if not it will be Friday.
