Who needs eggs y'all? My basket overfloweth and this isn't even all of them! Cheers to the weekend and a farmhouse kitchen that currently smells of bacon. 🥓

I have an egg customer whose elderly Mother-in-Law just can't bring herself to eat anything but brown or white eggs. So, this week, we decided to separate the colors: Browns for the Mother-in-Law and Blues/Greens for my sweet friend. Worked out perfectly! #EveryonesHappy

🐓 A tip for chicken keepers and healthy hens: Feed them back their crushed eggshells! I'm sure many of you are already privy to this, but it's worth re-sharing occasionally since there seem to be so many new chicken parents out there lately, which is wonderful to see! ❤
.
Eggshells are made up of almost entirely calcium carbonate, therefore, laying hens have a huge demand for replenishing calcium in their diet. This is essential - not only to produce healthy, strong shells - but also to help prevent potential (sometimes fatal) side effects from soft or irregular eggs, such as egg binding or soft-shell eggs breaking internally. A good layer feed, insects, and healthy treats isn't enough. Laying hens need to have a separate dish of "free choice" calcium available at all times (not mixed with their feed).
.
Providing store-bought oyster shells is one calcium option; our girls never liked them. Instead, we save their shells in a bowl in the back of the fridge, and prepare a big batch about once a month. First, we bake the shells on 300F for 5-10 minutes (5-8 if they're already dry, a tad longer if they're still wet) and let cool. Many people do not bake their shells, and simply crush and feed back. We prefer to bake them to help dry out the membrane for easier crushing, to slightly change the flavor/odor of the shells to reduce risk of the girls becoming egg-eaters, and to kill any potentially harmful bacteria present. It's totally up to you! In a bowl, food processor, or in a large reusable ziplock bag with a rolling pin (our preferred method), crush the shells to a consistency of your hens liking. I have seen some folks work it into a finer powder, but our girls seem to like it chunkier (swipe ⬅ to see the finished product). We then store the crushed shells in jars in the fridge, and replenish their little bowls of shells every few days so they are never without. Note: Don't feed extra calcium or layer feed to young pullets that aren't yet of laying age; too much calcium can be damaging to their kidneys.
.
Don't have chickens? You can still save/crush eggshells and add them to your compost or straight into your garden soil as a great natural amendment! 💪🌿

Everyone needs a lavender in their flock. This girl is gonna lay a bright blue egg. #lavenderameraucana

It's been a busy, but fun, week. We harvested the last of the veggies and did the run change over for the flocks. I got straight to work in the Layers old run and so far I've put peas in along the fences with spinach and carrot seeds in front. Meanwhile, the flock got to run amock amongst the pumpkin plants. They have now thoroughly demolished them!

Swipe left to see how things are working out with mom & adopted babes even though it didn't go as planned. The hen we posted earlier that was to be mom was unaccepting of the new babes. Luckily for the lil peeps we had split them between her & the sister who was trying to take over the nest of fake eggs. We then just gave all to mom 2 who had very little broody time so was confused but kind & a warm body to snuggle with. Things are different than with the hen who hatched eggs so it has been interesting to observe & learn from both experiences. #yellowdogfarmsnc #backyardpoultry #chickensofinstagram #backyardpoultrymagazine #babychicksarefun #raisingchickens #bufforpington #isabrownchickens #fresheggs #sustainableliving #farmlife #farmlifebestlife #countryliving #homestead

The Barred Plymouth Rock hen only appears mildly irritated. #chickens #fresheggs #poultry
