Francie looking after her flock of babies. These girls should lay olive green colored eggs when they grow up! #francieheff #fivemaryseggs #pasturedchickens

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!

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

Teamwork out at the cluck truck collecting those eggs. #myfourmarys #fivemaryseggs 攻鳶攻鳶攻鳶攻領歹 #clucktruckproject

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!

And homemade egg custard for dessert - I might have had more than a few eggs crack while I was packaging them today... lemons out of lemonade or custard out of broken eggs! #fivemaryseggs #gingernutmegcustard #sogoodicouldeatthemall #goldenyolks #happychickens

Made egg cups for breakfast, or as Janie calls them "egg cupcakes" with spinach, pulled pork, mushrooms, parmesan cheese, sea salt, garlic pepper and a Five Marys egg. Then topped with hot sauce of course! 喫塔 #eggcups #easybrunching #saturdaymorning #fivemaryseggs #fivemarysfarms (you can kinda see the ingredient steps in my story 嫵long with way too many videos of Tiny cracking eggs "but number five is so prrrrreeeetttty")

The chicken barn squad with their egg collecting aprons

(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!?

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!

Happy St. Patrick's Day from our green egg laying hens at Five Marys Farms to you and yours! 喫

Five Marys eggs looking good all boxed up and ready to roll.

Washing eggs is a chore I never get tired of. The smooth clean shells and beautiful colors are enough reward for the cleaning and washing this time of year when the hens muddy feet make the eggs dirty enough most need to be washed. (we try not to wash them so they keep their natural antibacterial "bloom" and don't need refrigeration - once we wash them they should be kept in the fridge.)

Messy Saturday morning breakfast of fresh Five Marys eggs, buttermilk pancakes and our new jowl bacon (it's sooo good!) 喫
#farmbreakfast #saturdaymorning #fivemaryseggs #fivemarysbacon #andpancakes #fivemarysfarms

Pretty excited to be back in the egg business!! The hens are laying and I need to get my egg washing and packing station back in shape again.
We pretty much don't eat eggs when they are out of season for us - so we've been feasting on eggs for breakfast, lunch and snacks!
#farmfresheggs #fivemaryseggs #fivemarysfarms

We're starting to look for eggs again since the days are getting longer. The hens are laying but this crazy torrential rain and mud is making hard to get out to the cluck trucks! Soon enough we'll be back in business Tiny Tess. 滕
(this photo is from last season, its way more of a mud pit out there right now... and I think Tiny is even a few inches taller!)
