Fresh Eggs

It is great to have fresh eggs to eat. The kids are responsible for gathering, washing, drying, and putting away the eggs. Having the chickens has taught them alot about being responsible and caring for their animals. We all love to eat the fresh eggs! We get 13 a day and when we cook breakfast around here we use about 16 eggs. 
Wanted to share a picture of the eggs. They are very pretty, nice in size and color. :) When we took six of the chickens to the fair in September we learned something from the man who was judging the chickens. If you take the egg shells and cook them a little bit, crush them up and add them to the chickens feed, its a great source of calcium for the chickens. Interesting! That is what we have been doing with our shells and it makes the whole egg useful.
