Does anyone have chickens? We have free range 5 hens and they seem to be laying more than ever right now. I was just watering the yard and heard a low buck bucking coming from my potted fern. Yep...sure enough she was hunkered right down in there. When she was *done*.....there where 8 eggs in that plant. Not to mention the 5 eggs I found yesterday on the BBQ cover that I had hurled in a corner.
Please come over and get some eggs.
For those of you that have chickens, here is my question. Why are the really fresh eggs so hard to peel after boiling? They are of no use for deviled eggs because they're so ugly after I peel them. I've noticed they get a bit easier to peel after they've been in the fridge awhile, but they're not as good. Is there a secret to peeling them?
