You have more discipline than I do--I'll go out and wait for two of the hens (they usually lay around 7:30), just so I can grab those two warm eggs...

So... you don't have to squeeze them to get the eggs to come out?

I don't quite go that far, FrankZ, but I will stand and wait somewhat impatiently.

Do you do the Chicken Dance while you wait?

No--I'm more like a lamaze coach or birthing partner <g>.

Your comment makes me think of a story my Grandfather used to tell about an eccentric old lady in our neck of the woods.

My Grandfather said she was so poor she used to follow the chickens around the yard with the frying pan in her hand waiting for them to lay an egg so she could fix lunch.

The so called good old days were not always that good.

Aunt Bea, are you suggesting that I'm eccentric?

Good one.

It is ironic with so many people out of work and struggling that so municipalities do not allow people to keep chickens. You can do so many things with eggs and they are a good source of protein. Although my maternal grandfather was a pharmacist, during the Depression, he often got paid in goods--rag rugs, chickens, a cut of beef, milk, butter, and cream. This was northern MN. They hunted partridge, etc., not because they enjoyed hunting, but because it was a source of food for the table. My grandmother had a huge vegetable garden. My mother told the story of how she and her older brother were sent to get some groceries. They had a $10 bill (which was a lot of money--from which they were to bring home change). Somehow, they lost it in the snow. She remembers eating cabbage and tomato soup for the next two weeks until they had money again--my grandmother would add more of her home-canned tomatoes to the soup pot every day...they also had FRESH eggs because my grandmother also kept...Rhode Island Red hens. But my grandmother wouldn't kill one of the hens because they had enough hens so each person got at least one FRESH egg a day, and if she killed one of the hens, someone would have to go without every day. I can't see my grandmother following the hens around the yard waiting for the hens to lay...

Could I be morphing into my grandmother?
She she used to follow the hens around the yard with a frying pan?
