Egg Overload

13 May

The girls have really kicked the egg production into high gear.

Nugget and ladies

I can’t keep up with them.

I used to use one or two eggs each day for Snickers, but he’s on a canned cat food kick-specifically seafood.

I keep forgetting to ask people at work if they’d like a dozen eggs.  Luckily, it’s spring salad time, so I’m making egg salad and every other kind of salad I can think of that takes eggs.  Today it was pea salad.

Mix together and refrigerate:

  • 2 cups frozen peas (mostly thawed)
  • 2 hard boiled eggs (diced)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1 Tbsp. bacon bits
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Miracle Whip (or mayonaise)
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. brown mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp. dill
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper

Yum!

Odds and Ends

23 Oct

It’s that time of year when I just don’t have time to blog (and take pictures) every day, so I’m doing almost all of my blog posts on the weekend.  That means I get behind in what’s going on.  Today, I’m just sharing a few odds and ends.

Friday, I gathered seven eggs from the chickens.  I have nine hens and nugget, but the two old hens don’t lay eggs anymore.  This is the variety I get from the hens.

Love all those colors!

My dad came out last week, and he put the new roof on the well house.  That’s a good job done.

Now I just need to re-paint the whole thing.  Sometime.  I don’t know when.

The buffer strip around my corn field got mowed again.

This will be the last batch of hay for the year.

The Girls are Producing

10 Oct

My new hens are laying eggs!

They are actually quite productive.

That’s a good thing because Snickers’s diet is pretty much back to egg poached in a huge amount of margarine with a healthy dollop of goat milk.

He’s looking pretty rough these days; that mouth is in bad shape.  My poor boy.

Snickers

I just need to keep the goats milking for a while yet so I can freeze enough to last us through the winter.

I can use store bought eggs for him, but it has to be whole goat milk!

He might be a bit spoiled (or just deserving of it).
