Fresh Eggs Are FINALLY Arriving!!

After what seemed like waiting FOREVER and a day, we finally have our first fresh egg!! Yay!!! Robert had a meeting to attend for the evening, so Halie and I went down to the barn to let the horses out for the night and there it was laying on the ground next to the water trough. : )

It was fairly small, but perfectly formed and a perfect orange color and tasted oh so yummy!

I found this one on Tuesday and yesterday Robert found a 2nd one that was slightly larger. So they're finally starting to lay! Woo Hoo!!! I cooked up the second one this morning for breakfast and the difference is so amazing between the store bought and fresh eggs. I scrambled them and the store bought was so pale it was almost white once scrambled, but the fresh was BRIGHT yellow/orange. I was thinking about this while sitting here listening to "Bucky" and the other roosters welcome the dawn and I concluded that I love farm/ranch life!


  1. Steph, I agree with you 100%. Our neighbors have kept us in fresh eggs. that's really nice price wise, taste wise, and health wise(especially lower in cholosterol.)
    They killed off their old chickens and hatched new ones. They're just now beginning to lay again, yeah!

  2. I have talked with Jaron about having chickens! Surprised myself since I am so NOT into animals! He said NO! Of course up here, we would have to figure out a way to keep them warm in the winter.
    I've heard they taste better - how about a jar of cinnamon pickles for some eggs? HA

  3. Farm eggs are the BEST! My in-laws have bunches of chickens and they are generous enough to share the eggs with us. I definitely notice a difference! Thanks for stopping by the other day to comment on my blog. :)

  4. That there's a good looking aig. Or is it ayg?
