These are a few of the happy chickens down the road who supply our eggs.
And these are the eggs we picked up – doesn’t get much fresher than this; in fact, the farmer was just washing them!
And believe it or not, these are pictures I took with my iPhone which I’ve edited and published from my iPad – WOOT!!!
Waaa…. my farm-fresh chickens are $4.50 a dozen! But that’s ok. 🙂 They’re worth it, and I’d pay $4.50 per egg if it meant I got good eggs. (But don’t tell my chicken man that.)
I had chickens growing up and miss them dearly. We keep talking about adding them to the garden… but I haven’t asked Mr. RGBistro to build the coop yet… yet. 😉
I know people have said this already… but $2.50 per dozen? that’s not bad! I tend to pay at least double that here… But it’s totally worth the money.
I’m a bad friend! I haven’t been commenting because I’m hopelessly behind in my blog reading – and I spent this morning catching up. Oh my, what beautiful food you’ve been doing lately! The Texas sheet cake – that reminds me of home too. And the Vietnamese coffee cupcakes – brilliant! We must have been thinking the same thing with blueberries – your buckle looks so homey. I made blueberry muffins last night and flavored my milk with ginger and lemongrass, but yours look soooo much more welcoming.
You are doing some darn fine work. Keep it up!
You are NOT a bad friend Jenny! I know how it is to get behind in blog reading – it’s a full-time job! I’m not a baker at all so getting your compliments is pretty terrific – thanks friend! And looking forward to meeting in person soon!
$2.50 a dozen? Get out! I’m so jealous.
It seems like a lot of people I know are getting chickens, but I’m not ready for the responsibility…one cat is plenty!
Yes $2.50/dozen, crazy right?! They were only charging $2/dozen and we told them they should be charging more!!
My family used to get fresh eggs from a local farmer when I was a kid. We lived in a suburb of St. Louis but housing developments were built next to farms and it was a combination of country and city in a way.
Not so where I am now; I have no idea where I would have to go to find eggs like this in the south…burbs of Denver that is!
We feel so fortunate to have these guys less than 1 mile from our house – and at $2.50/doz for eggs so fresh they have to wash them, a steal!
I told my husband I wanted to have fresh eggs in the house, he thought I meant I wanted chickens. I’m not ready for the chickens, but I am ready for a local farmer to get them from regularly 🙂
Beth, we’d thought about raising our own chickens but honestly, when these are about 1 mile up the road, it just didn’t make sense given that we travel quite a bit and would need someone to tend them while we are away. It’s fun to go each week and see those happy chickens pecking away in the sun!
