A Dozen Dozen Farm Eggs

Eggs Feb 2018

Four days’ worth of eggs – ready to be washed and put in the Egg Refrigerator. I have an egg washing process that would bore you senseless, but it works for me. I only wash the eggs I sell or donate because the state health department requires them to be washed. Silly gumment.

I don’t wash the eggs we eat – that would be silly. Washing washes off the egg’s bloom, which protects the egg and keeps it fresh. The Ameraucanas lay the green and blue eggs. The Marans lay the dark, dark brown eggs. The Buff Orpingtons lay the darker tan eggs. The Black Australorps lay the tan eggs, and the Delawares lay the lightest tan eggs.

A dozen dozen – Gross! (farm humor)

  2. All those glowing fertility symbols laid out right in front of God and ever’buddy — downright inspirational. And Easter is-a-comin — joy is on the way! I’ve been missing your bucolic blessings … love to you and the family. I still miss my Ducky; I’d love to come out and hug chickens!
