Tell me about it. Years ago, I started with 25 "straight run" bittys six of which turned out to be roosters...5 went to the stew pot..one for Crowing. That left 19 pullets. Which was more than enough. I began selling a few eggs to off set feed, etc. It was fun...so I went and bought 150 sexed pullets. In no time short I was picking up 12 dozen per day!! I was in da egg business!!! I even made a few dollars selling to neighbors etc. Then it became work, so I gradually got out of the chicken/egg routine. Sometimes I wish I still had about 6 hens. Nothing like hearing one cackle, going and pick up the egg while still warm, and going straight to the frying pan!! Like Dave said, I fed oyster shell on the side to improve shell thickness especially as the hens aged. Good memories! Oh, All things being equal there is no difference in egg quality, nutritional value or flavor in a brown/white/blue/speckled/etc egg!

Fun!!

Sometimes I miss having my own egg laying chickens. They had wonderful eggs.

I do buy Egglands because I think they taste better. And I always use a coupon (that's doubled) so the price isn't too bad IMO.

I remember growing up we would get up in the morning just as mom came back in with fresh eggs from our layers. Best eggs I have ever had.

For some reason these days, I can't eat eggs in the morning or I get very sick to my stomach. I have no idea why...

Ahh, yes..... not enough tabasco on them. And perhaps substitute a good ol can of soda instead of having coffee or OJ.
