Farm Fresh Eggs in Auburn CA

Posted by:

So instead of selling our girls’ awesome eggs, we’re going to *give* them away to our friends, family and community. Better to teach our kids that embracing an ethical community spirit is equally important as learning how to ethically turn a profit. (but if it makes you feel any better, can donate a couple of bucks towards chicken feed – stuff ain’t cheap) =)

Notes/ FAQs

  • Yes, the eggs have been cleaned
  • You will notice that these eggs taste ...

Arbiter “Arbi” – Ameraucana Hen

Hi, i’m Arbi and I lay green eggs. I’m one of two Ameraucanas in this flock. I’m very pretty and fairly even-keeled. You can tell me apart from my sister, Loca, from the speckles on my chest. Loca is fairly plain in that area. When we were a few days old, Loca received her name because of the fact that she frantically raced around me and tried to nestle under me to use my ...

Maia – Buff Plymouth Rock

Hellooooo… I’m Maia. I’m the slow and melloooooow one of the group. I’m buff in color, sweet, calm and enjoy a good nap. Although I was one of the last hens to start laying eggs, they are some of the best out there. My eggs are light brown, large and delicious. I’m so mellow that I sometimes fall asleep while in the nesting box… and it can make some of my sisters upset when they have ...

Fog “Foggy” – Leghorn Hen

Hi there! My name is Fog. “Foggy” is my nickname. (my family thought it would be funny to name me after some silly, ancient cartoon from the 70’s. They are hilarious… said no one ever.)

Anyway, I have a spunky personality. Some would say I’m a bit crazy. I’m not.. I’m just curious with a cautious overtone. I’m always first to come say hi whenever folks come outside. I’m the ...

Loca – Ameraucana Hen

Hi, i’m Loca and my eggs are blue/green and awesome. I’m one of two Ameraucanas in this flock. I’m very pretty and fairly even-keeled. You can tell me apart from my sister, Arbiter, from the lack speckles on my chest. Although I may be fairly plain in that area, I’m pretty sure I’m the favorite of the pair. There is a story going around that when we were a few days old, I received my ...

Louise “Weezy” – Barred Plymouth Rock

Hi, Louise here… “Weezy” to my friends. I’m the other Plymouth Rock in the group, but I look nothing like Maia. Apparently girls like me are what’s know as “barred.” I came into the group with Cress, which at first was a bit of an ordeal. (pecking order issues) But I stood my ground and have become one of the bravest of the bunch. I, like Maia, lay large brown ...

Asti

Posted by:

Howdy, my name is Asti and I’m an Australorp Hen who lays large brown eggs. When I was a teenager, I was considered the matriarch of the flock. I was first on the scene every time my owner brought big chunks of rotted word so we could pick out the termites. (one of my favorite foods if you were wondering) I’ve now mellowed out a bit (but still first on the scene to grab food off the ground) and am ...

Chickens: Lessons Learned

Posted by:

  • Chickens are *very* social animals
  • Chickens make a specific crowing sound after they lay an egg
  • Chickens have pin-point accuracy with their beaks
  • Chickens have killer eyesight
  • Fresh eggs have harder shells than store-bought eggs
  • Chickens eat most every table scrap
  • “Pecking orders” do exist
  • I now understand from where the word “chicken” was derived (they are very nervous around unfamiliar things)
