EGGS :: It’s What’s For Dinner (And Lunch)

A few good chicks (at 2 weeks old)

We’ve had the 6 baby chicks and 1 rooster for 2 weeks. The earliest they’ll be laying eggs is October, good Lord willing and the hawks don’t fly overhead. A friend brought us 4 laying hens last Sunday. Two are Rhode Island Reds (Bertha and Weisa) and 2 are Banties (Bobbi and Dayle).  All named for Lance’s grandmothers (the grandma’s given names plus their nicknames).

In the week we’ve had the 4 hens, we’ve collected 18 eggs!! One dropped and 3 shared with a favorite neighbor. The rest are being used up fast, with great pleasure! Lance made us egg sammiches (best ever, I might add). I made a Quiche and a Fritatta this weekend. Both, outstanding (if I do say so myself).  Are the dishes so good because they came from happy chickens? I do believe so. I’m anxious to see how many different delicious dishes we can create from our incredible, edible (free range) EGGS!

About Lets Go To Idaho

Me, Mare, empty nester, flew the coop (& heat) of Alabama and landed in northern Idaho. Bought a house without setting foot in the state. This blog was created in the summer of 2011, as my beau, Lance and I were packing to move to north... Many things, big and small, have happened since that blistering hot July in Bama when I began this blog. Read about our whirlwind adventures. Our real life love story. The good, the bad, the silly and the crazy things that happen to us.
