The Joy Of Eggs

Hi there readers, eggs eggs eggs, I cannot say enough about the quality of the eggs our hens produce, as I’m sure other keepers will relate, the taste, colour and nutrience is far above the mass produced varieties that fill our supermarket shelves. I have written previously of the health qualities of the home grown egg or organic egg, mainly the omega contents can be up to 500% more than that of a supermarket egg.

The second best use of the eggs is giving them to friends and family, it’s great to hear the responses from those who are so used to the pale tasteless battery variety, I hope that it will encourage them to buy organic eggs, or better still get some of their own hens.

 It costs less than the price of 6 organic eggs  to keep 3 hens per week.

Finding a Chicken Sitter

Hello keepers, it seems that going away on holiday is going to be harder than it was pre chickens, it’s one thing to ask friends to come over and water your plants while your away for a week or two, however trying to find someone to either live at your house while your away, or come over at least twice a day is alot to ask, no matter how good a friend.

Feeding a cat is a common request from holiday goers, which again isn’t that much of a hardship, cats are so independant, they could look after themselves while you were away, they’d probably just go to the neighbour, as they do that whether your on holiday or not. However looking after a small flock of hens seems to daunt some people.
