I was chatting with a friend tonight, and I mentioned how the girls have been laying eggs like CRAZY. Granted, not ALL of the eggs the girls lay are full-sized eggs that I will sell, but still, regardless of their size, we're getting a LOT of eggs!
For giggles, I thought I would share a photo with you of my fridge, as it looks right now. There are 20 dozen eggs, packaged and ready to deliver to customers. There's almost another dozen not in a carton yet ... and then there are the two LARGE bowls of small banty eggs (those are the ones we keep) and the eggs too large to fit in a carton. Some of the girls lay MONSTER sized eggs!
Each dozen has a variety of shell colors, and I make sure that every dozen has at least 1 green shelled egg. You can see a couple of the Black Copper Marans girls' eggs on the bottom row ... they're the REALLY dark brown shelled eggs. Even though they are not the largest of the eggs, I like the variety of color they add to the cartons.
Tuesday is my standard delivery day, so on Tuesday I will deliver at least 14 dozen to folks in town.. I think I might need to start doing two days of delivery!
I guess the girls are happy, and healthy!
Tomorrow, I'll gather more eggs... it's like Easter every day here on the farm!
