We've been enjoying lots of fresh eggs from our friends' range-roamin' chickens.
Remember this hen? This is the one that lays speckled eggs.
Here's one of her daily commodities.
Before we started getting eggs from our friends, we had been buying free-range chicken eggs from the store. The yolks from our friends' eggs were noticeably darker.
Some sources say that the darker yolks contain more beta carotene. I think it's just kinda cool to have met and held the bearers of our eggs!
I actually thought of Angela who recently gave birth to a 9-1/2 pound boy...and Joe's cousin who gave birth to a near 11 pounder. Yes, looking at an egg like that can make a momma think of such things...especially since our largest babe was a mere 8-1/2 lbs.
It was a double yolker.
Well, maybe I can sort of relate.
I guess they were double yolkers too!
