New Egg Layer


We’ve been getting eggs from 6 out of our 9 chickens.  So, I go out yesterday to eggs as usual and I notice a new style egg… we got a new layer!  Although, we aren’t totally sure who it is still.  The odds are greatest that it is our Buff Orpington, named Goldielocks.  The egg that’s newest to us is the one on top.  We are just happy to have 7 layers now and maybe one day soon we’ll figure it out…LOL!  Now we just have to wait for the other 2 to start laying! 🙂

A Beginner’s Guide to Backyard Chickens

20150917_101049 – Mark’s Daily Apple –

Keeping backyard chickens has long been an interest of mine. I’ve never actually gone through with it, partly because I just don’t have the time, partly because the homeowners association would veto it in a heartbeat, and mostly because I have a very reliable, reasonably priced source of pastured, bug-eating chickens and chicken eggs. Nevertheless, I love the idea of stepping outside my back door, greeting the flock of chickens (perhaps by name), and coming back in with an armful of fresh eggs. It’s admittedly a romantic, possibly naive vision, especially without the flecks of manure obscuring it. In any case, I’m drawn to the idea of it, so I’ve researched this growing trend and will share with you my findings in this not-so authoritative guide. Hopefully the general information, links, and leads will inspire you to dig deeper. And if you have any experience raising chickens I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment board.
