A Dozen FRESH Eggs!

Our 2 sweet hens supply us with 2 eggs a day. They seem to add up quite fast, and we are able to share them now! I always know when a hen has laid her egg for the day because of all the excitement and joyful sounds they make! They cheer each other on, or as they say "egg each other on"! Gracie is laying larger eggs then Flossie but I am sure hers will become larger as the  hens continue to mature.
This first "official" set of a dozen eggs went to our daughter Heidi! Can't wait to hear what she bakes with them!!!
Those incredible eggs!
I was thinking that if I ever run out of eggs, all I need to do is wait until the morning and I will have 2 waiting for me! Enough to make a batch of yummy cookies! :)

They look wonderful! I love fresh eggs. Our old neighbors have chickens and used to bring us fresh eggs when we lived next to them.

Maryjane,

What beautiful eggs!!! I'm sure you are enjoying them. Nothing is better than a real, real fresh egg.
Hope you have a wonderful and blessed week.

we get our eggs from a neighbor that actually lives on a small acre.
Now I am spoiled and won't use store bought eggs. The yolks are so nice and yellow and it makes such a difference in what you cook or bake with.

So cute....when we bought our little homestead, a hen came with the place. We had no idea anything about her...but when we checked we had one egg...that was in Feb....now we have five hens...but most days we get 4 and some days five....so someone is sluffing off on their job LOL...in November we are getting 7 more...definitely needed as we go through a lot of eggs here and with increasing number children this coming year, they will be a blessing as well.

Have a great week.

Congrats! I gave my first away to my daughter yesterday. My grandson, Grayson, (2) got to get the last two out of the nest. He was thrilled to take them home. I'm getting two a day as well.

Lovely! Nothing tastes better than fresh eggs. Once you get used to them, you just can't bear eating the ones from the store, as they never taste as good.
