This is the true reason I have chickens. Back to being the ultimate cheapo!
I have a free range hen and she likes to hide her eggs. But we found her.
She is a bit of my challenge. She went free range about 8 months ago. Since then, she has been laying eggs for my neighbors, frustrating me, since I am feeding her and she is feeding the neighbors!
Well, we found them! Yeah! Especially, when eggs can range about $2.40 a dozen, this was sure glee!
I was so excited! We had them for breakfast already and I must say, yum! She lays us eggs that are half yoke! So even when you dilute them with milk, the scrambled eggs still are yellower than regular white eggs scrambled.
I am not sure what type of chicken she is and she likes to hide from me. She has extra toes and has a bit of a fluff style to her. I am not sure if it is her bread that creates these eggs or is it the benefit of good organic free range eggs. Either way, she is a great pet.
