    Chickens 'do' have lots of individual personalities - we raised up 6 Aracondas(sp) - the ones that lay colored eggs - but we gave them to a good friend as we travel some and they are hard to leave. We do get 'free' eggs! ;-) One day, though!

    The main thing around here is to protect them from animals night and day - racoons will dig under the pens (they are relentless) and hawks/owls will get them from the air!

  • scoutmomof2 Feb 26, 2014

    jdouglas, chickens aren't that hard. I saw a great idea on pinterest for converting an old swingset frame into a chicken coup. I lived on a chicken farm for awhile growing up and used to go into the houses (it was a big chicken farm) to get eggs with my Grandpa.

  • privilegesrevoked Feb 26, 2014

    All this discussion about fresh eggs reminds me of my Aunt and Uncle up in NY, used to go out to the Amish and get their eggs, and many of them would have double yolks! they really do taste so much better than store bought.

  • jdouglas13 Feb 26, 2014

    Careless, is your aunt looking to sell or trade or give away her excess eggs? I am always on the hunt for affordable fresh-from-the-hen eggs. They are so good that I even considered getting some chickens myself, but this ex-NYC girl is beyond clueless when it comes to livestock. I can just about manage the pups.

    Does anyone know a good source for affordable fresh eggs?

  • carelesswhisper Feb 26, 2014

    My aunt has about 10 chickens and roosters. My daughter loves to go there and "play" with them. She has an overflow of fresh eggs!

    Baseball2hockey ~ I think I want a chicken now.......hubby would kill me LOL. But I gave him a fair warning when we first got married, i told him, be sure to buy me a big house with a huge yard for my dogs, pigs, and horses (I was that kid that always brought stray animals home as pets, Rae is going down that same path.....she isnt afraid of ANY animal) i can add chickens to the list! Cant wait to see his face hahahaha. RIP Dorothy

    baseball2hockey - thanks for the additional info! And so sorry about Dorothy. :-(

    2honest2care - I have never frozen eggs myself. We go through them quickly here. But, if you find you have too many to use before they get too old, you can always make some baked goods and freeze those (like muffins, French toast, pancakes, and even egg and cheese burritos).

    I forgot to mention that 3 weeks ago we lost one of our feathered girls. She was too friendly and thought she would fly over the fence from their run into the backyard where our 3 dogs roam and one of my dogs jumped her. It was such a sad day. When we first got them I named them after the ladies on the Golden Girls. The one we lost was Dorothy. RIP!
    Anyway, for the upkeep for the remaining chickens it is not that expensive. We just picked up a 50 lb. bag of chicken scratch for around 12 Dollars which lasts a few months. I buy most of the produce off the reduced racks at the supermarkets and any kind of veggie leftovers will go to them. They love mushy bananas and tomatoes and quite often I dig in the garden area for them to search for worms. You can also feed them cooked rice and pasta, which goes on sale a lot and I have a great backup stock from my favorite store, Harris Teeter. I also trade eggs for feed to the neighbors since I don't sell them. Hope that answers your question

  • 2honest2care Feb 26, 2014

    Thanks ya'll that does help! I didn't realize eggs would last so long. We go through a lot of eggs here, but ya never know. Faye- Thanks for the tips on how to freeze. I've heard of the ice cube tray trick, but I didn't know they had to be scrambled. So that helps.

    I have used eggs that were a month past 'use by' date, the only thing I do to be sure they're ok is to open them into a small dish first before using or adding them to what I need them for, that way, if one is bad, I can toss it without ruining what I'm making.
    So far, have NEVER come across a bad egg that was well past the 'use by' date on the container :)
