We are packing eggs for breakfasts, hard boiling 6 dozen, making 10 pounds of pulled pork, 2 jars of chimchurri sauce, 3 pans of apricot granola bars and some hello dollies to take with us. πŸ‘πŸΌ 17 kids and 11 adults on one house plus lots of aunts and uncles and cousins to feed! #cleaningoutthefridge #andthepantry #heffreunion #herewecome #fivemaryseggs

A little fun with egg packing and order filling this morning! Which color is your favorite? #fivemaryseggs #fivemarysfarms

Francie looking after her flock of babies. These girls should lay olive green colored eggs when they grow up! πŸ’šπŸ™ŒπŸΌ #francieheff #fivemaryseggs #pasturedchickens

Feeding frenzy at the cluck truck while the rain lets up and the sunshine pours down. Tiny is actually feeding them and not aggressively "hugging" her favorite Mr Mohawk for once!

We are getting over 200 eggs a day now... lots to bring down to the Farm Stand and stock at Academic Trainers if you're in the Bay Area!

Looks like I need to step up my egg collecting a... frozen solid!
#fivemaryseggs #itscoldhere (PS this is a slight exaggeration ;) I left these in my basket outside overnight. Hopefully the ones in the cozy nesting boxes on hay and possibly under a warm chicken body don't meet the same fate.) β„οΈπŸ£ (PPS. I know I have huge gorilla hands πŸ’πŸ™ˆ)

Throwback to last summer with my littlest egg collector in the old barn and my favorite basket from my mom. ✨

Late breakfast in the sunny spot in our kitchen before the retreat begins! Three farm fresh eggs over-easy, a half of an avocado, a jalapeño and tapatio hot sauce over tortilla chips. 🍳🌢

The makings of a very happy Father's Day camp breakfast! We all slept up here last night under the stars and it was a warm and breezy night. Waking up at Camp might be the best thing ever. ✨

Longer days and warmer temps are putting the hens back in super production. Collecting and sorting eggs is a chore I never get tired of! πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

(the aprons were made by @jennyshutan - they each suit the girls so perfectly, thank you!)

Egg collecting with some curious chickens. I was just enjoying by my lunch break in the sunshine when some cows started sauntering down the middle of the road! I got them in but we are counting the days until the pasture grasses grow enough to move the cows on. We sure got enough water this year but we are a month behind in sunshine!

I take back everything I said about natural egg dyes, a 24+ hour soak was the ticket! These turned out so pretty I'm kind of obsessed. Not that your real colors aren't gorgeous too chickens, but it's kinda fun to see this result for Easter too!

All shapes and sizes today! I found these two eggs on the bottom in a new spot a few of the chickens have started laying by the house - they are this beautiful shade of hazel with a green stripe around the top!! Both of them identical, I've never seen anything like it. 😍
I think they are from an "olive egger" hen or a new cross - since our chickens are totally free range they can naturally cross between unique breeds and some of our baby chicks that grow up into egg laying hens have had really unusual egg colors this year. Perfectly natural Easter eggs without even needing those natural dyes huh!?
#fivemaryseggs #freerangechickens #allnatural #pasturedeverything #fivemarysfarms #fedexgrant PS we will be selling eggs in the Bay Area/Menlo Park on Saturday 10am to noon if you want some of these beauties!

Overnight soak after we strained all the onion skins and cabbage and beets and turmeric out. Time will tell! πŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯šπŸ₯š

Experimenting with natural egg dyes. I usually love my deep dark Hungarian dyes I hoard and use a little every year, but this year we are going au natural. Just trying to get the yellow and purple hues we are missing from our egg rainbow. Emphasis on experimenting!!!

I've never even seen this I real life but somehow I miraculously caught this chicken LAYING AN EGG on video today when I was collecting eggs!! I posted it in my story but it might need live on in history here too. So crazy right!?

Who wants eggs?! We are stock piling our eggs this week to take down to the Bay Area for Easter weekend - the girls are going to set up a little "Pack Your Own" egg stand (they'll be sorted by color like this!) at my parents house on Saturday April 15 from 10am-noon... message me for the address of you are in the area!
