We just couldn't resist
~We've been storing our eggs wrong. Ooops. Did you know they are actually supposed to be stored pointy side down for longer freshness?
~We shouldn't be washing our eggs when we bring them in. There is a protective membrane on the shell and washing it off makes the egg rotten faster. (We eat them so quick though, so I don't think that's an issue with us! ;o)
~I now know how to tell if a day old egg is fertilized.
Buff Brahma. This breed is known for having feathers on their feet. Neat! He named his chick "Mudball."
Barred Rock which is the type of chicken that our Mrs. Peabody is. These are beautiful hens when they are grown! Silas named her Bean. Cute!
Right now our chicks are 1 week old. In 6 more weeks we will introduce them to our other "girls" and let them have fun in the coop! We are averaging 7-8 eggs a day! Wow! Omelet anyone?
It sure is fun watching our Farm grow! I need to post pictures of our garden that was just tilled. I think we're planning to feed an army!
