  1. Hello:
    Yes, this really did make us smile. It brought back happy memories of our chicken keeping days. There really is NOTHING like a freshly laid egg.

  4. I grew up raising chickens. I was in charge of collecting eggs twice a day. Some of those hens were MEAN. And I always hasten to tell everyone that there REALLY is such a thing as a pecking order! But...those eggs? DELICIOUS. So much better than the ones I get at the supermarket now. And many of them had double yolks.

    1. I caught one of the hens sitting on top of another pecking the back of her head. A swift kick up the arse and a threat of landing in the stew pot cut that short.

    1. A small electric fence does the trick. No Raccoon problems for months since we installed it.

  6. Boiled egg and soldiers........! Nothing beats a brekkie like that - or a 10-second fried one on a hungover Sunday!
