Today I was out doing yard work so I decided to let the chickens roam. Typically we keep them in there fenced area and let them roam on Saturdays or Sundays when we are outside.
I have a flock of several breeds. There are some Rhode Island Reds, Partridge Rock, Barred Rock, Ameraucana, Dominique, Buff Orpington, Black Australorp, a Turken and Cockoo Maran. I only have 17 chickens so there is only one or two of each breed. My favorite one is this gal…Molly 2. She’s a Blue Cochin.
I love all her feathers. She’s just a HUGE puff ball. Last year I got five chicks from the hatchery and she raised them. She’s a great mom. As I was trying to take a couple pictures the rooster crowed and the hens ran. My son was putting feed in the feeder and he wanted all the girls to know.
I am being flooded with eggs now….at least a dozen a day… Anyone have some good recipes that use lots of eggs. I started a listing here on the blog…but still with that many eggs…I really need recipes!
