Three of the hens are laying now. Miss Red, here, is the most consistent layer of the brood. Everyday by 10am there is a large brown egg waiting for us in the box. With two of the other hens laying, we average 2 a day. The eggs have moved beyond novelty to staple. We didn’t get to the store this weekend, so I had to survey the kitchen and think on my feet to come up with dinner. Eggs on the counter + veggies from the CSA basket = quiche for dinner.
Maybe the novelty has yet to wear. I’m still pretty excited by our small sliver of urban sustainability.
