It was a fun evening recently to have the grandchildren gather the eggs. Candace brought them out for a while on the evening before the trip she and Dan made with Kinsley to Children’s Hospital, which, sadly, would verify Kinsley’s diagnosis of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.
I love the camaraderie our little flock has provided in our family, and the excellent care Tony takes of “the girls”. We’ve even developed a little network of some family and our neighbors that drop off or send bags or containers of produce scraps for them, which delights them each morning when they rush out to see what treats await them aside from their usual pellets and “scratch”.
From being hatched in April until the current month of October, almost all of “the girls” have now begun laying. These are high protein (fertile) eggs with bright orange yokes. What an extremely healthy benefit to a fun family hobby.
