So I have been hoarding this cute little wooden crate for almost two years. It was originally a container for organic tinned tomatoes. It has been utterly in the way, and I hate clutter, so I have been meaning to recycle it for ages but every time I picked it up to do so its cuteness got to me…..
It sits right on my countertop so that I can caress eggs lovingly as I boil the kettle for my tea umpteen times a day.
I’ve had chickens two weeks and I have had twenty eggs. Not bad going! The picture at the very top is the first egg that I got. Bunny laid it.
Priscilla is getting more accustomed to me cuddling her,…….. like she has any choice…. Bunny is even bolder and heckles me for strokes every time I am in the backyard. Veronica appears to be at the top of the pecking order.
Chicken Economy Week Two
Total Cost; $507
Total Output; 20 eggs
Cost per egg; $25.35
Now I am only eating $25 dollar eggs! A much improved economy from last week
If I were to only keep my chickens a fortnight, I would be a total loser on this investment. However, lets see what the cost per egg comes down to next week!
LAY GIRLS LAY!
