An Abundance of Eggs

DSC_0379 (1)

I remember from previous years, that we go from having no eggs through the winter, a couple of eggs a day as we come into the new year and then BAM… we are getting 8+ a day. Now we like eggs, but even we can’t eat that many! I’m selling some to my friend, but even then we’ve got more than we know what to do with. So I’m egg recipe searching, I am hoping to find inspiration, something other than the obvious – omelette, frittata etc. Result – well there are lots of ideas, one recipe, egg curry, reminded me that D used to make that and it was delicious, so that’s definitely one for the plan. I found this as well which I think we’ve had before, so that could be another one.

We have a fair few chickens now and we also have runner ducks. We’ve actually got more than we had last year as we rehomed my friends 7 duck’s, when her landlord told her she needed to get rid of them suddenly. One of them then got broody and hatched out 7 chicks, 5 of which survived. We’ve since lost 2 ducks, 1 of my friends and the 1 we had left from our group of 4. Then our neighbour was moving house and asked if we could rehome their chickens so we added those to our lot, making about 11 chicken and we have a cockerel. Dave’s now got plans to extend the run and build a proper pond, hopefully we’ll get chance to do a bit this summer.

So hopefully next time you visit I will be able to show you a photo with less eggs and maybe have some

egg recipes to share.

We are very lucky though, fresh eggs from the garden everyday and I love all the different colours and sizes we get. We did used to know which chicken laid which egg, but now with all the new ones, we’ve not had chance to work it our yet.

Ok I’ll leave you with that eggcelent photo and hope you have an eggciting (sorry couldn’t resist) week and hope you can stop by again soon E x
