Our chickens started laying about six weeks ago, and between the 12 of them we get anywhere from 5-9 eggs a day. Thank goodness my husband and boys likes eggs.
Our brood is a group of "exotic" hens that I had sent to us in the mail from a breeder about two years ago. This is why they lay such an array of colored eggs. We get green, blue, pink, and all shades of brown.
Can you believe I have had people ask me, "are they safe to eat"? Yep, they are safe and taste like a fresh white egg.
