What? No Eggs?

For the first time in the year and a half I've had chickens, I don't have a single egg in the house.  How could that be?

For a while I had an overabundance of eggs as no one was stopping in to buy.  Then boom - a week or so ago I had a lady say she wanted a dozen and when I opened the carton to show her, she said they're huge,  I'll take two.  An hour later another lady drove up and said she wanted two dozen, looked at them and said I'll take five if you have them.  She had to settle for the four I had left.

That same lady stopped in yesterday and said they were the best eggs she'd ever eaten and wanted another two dozen. The girls were done laying and I had just washed the eggs and put them in the carton, so I had eggsactly that - 24 eggs.

My girls lay some pretty eggs

I had to settle for peanut butter toast for breakfast this morning.

That is why I have bantams too. Even when all the big eggs are gone I always have a couple bantam eggs I can use.

It does feel good to have a little extra money to help pay the feed bill.
