It’s been 9 days since we moved three new chickens into our little urban farm. Even with the stress of riding up the freeway in their coop and being somewhat manhandled by an enthusiastic 9-year-old boy, these ladies got right to work. Our total production has reached 20 (!!) eggs. Pretty crazy, right? Given that we were given a very large bag of food for free when we picked up the chickens, this has cost us nothing except for the elbow grease of keeping the coop clean. Unfortunately we bought five dozen eggs at Costco a few days before we made the decision to bring these already laying chickens home. We’ve been eating a lot of quiche! Tonight we will have pasta carbonara. We can hardly wait to get through the Costco eggs and get started on the fresh free-range eggs from our ladies.
