I have threatened to blow him to bits several times. Have literally beaten him silly trying to knock his head off and he comes back like the Energizer Bunny! He has not tried to flog me lataely but there for a while he was awful. The one and only reason he is still around is that it stopped. Crazy protective of the flock and an all around jerk of a rooster. His days are numbered.

He looks just like the Australorp roo we had, but ours was the friendliest bird in the coop. Never jumped on anyone and would eat out of your hand.

Got my first eggs today.

Five of my ten hens laid for the first time today.

Eggs will get bigger as they continue laying and hopefully all ten hens will be laying soon. thumbup

For the past couple years, I've had a couple Muscovy drakes down in my parents' pond. My Mom adores them, goes down and feeds them, talks to them, etc., daily, and when they're gone somewhere on the road, we always hear "please feed the ducks"...not "watch the house" or anything else! Anyway, my Mom has said for some time that the 2 drakes needed some hens in there with them. So 'Huntress and I bought 10 hens. This morning was time to turn them out in their new home. They all marched out of the crate and into the water...swam straight across the pond, marched up the other bank and into the woods...haven't seen them since! *L* The drakes were hand raised, and these hens were about half grown...didn't want to fool with hand raising more, but I guess I'll get some younger ducklings and hand raise them before moving them down there, maybe they'll stay!

If you don’t wash the eggs they will last longer. If they are really nasty wash them, other wise, I don’t. There is a protective layer(called a bloom) on the egg that keeps bacteria out. This is what keeps eggs from going bad without refrigeration until they hatch

But, best eggs you will ever eat. Most expensive too, lol!!

Well I may as well jump in. The backyard flock is such a fun hobby. Roughly 20 birds at all times. RIR, Golden Comet, Barred Rock, Ameraucana, and Jersey Giant. Most expensive and most enjoyable eggs ever!

True words! People often ask me why I don't sell my eggs and I just say, "You could not afford what they would actually cost."

I give the eggs away. More fun to give them to friends at church and work. But there is a catch. I give you a dozen eggs in a new carton. Bring the carton back, and you stay on the weekly free eggs rotation. Fail to bring the carton back, and you move to the bottom of the list. One family takes a carton and brings back my carton plus several more. They are top of my list!

We give them away, too. Suddenly had so many people bringing us cartons that we had to tell them to stop! LOL

If you ever get tired of giving the eggs away, just slip two or three from under a settin hen in the box and they won't come back.

I have sold eggs in the past just to make the feed bill....


I've spent most of the money I've made in my lifetime on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.....
