Bantam chicken eggs

Eggs from our Silver Seabright and Auracana bantam hens. They’re about half the size of regular eggs. Bantams make a lot of sense if space is limited.

Preparing bite-sized pieces of cauliflower leaves for chickens last night. Chickens love it any time you do something special for them. I was unloading lumber for our new chicken coop yesterday and let them out. They were so excited. Boss man rooster was telling everyone to get out here and get those bugs.

  1. Lovely! One of life’s simple pleasures, collecting fresh eggs… I’ve wondered how your new rat-proof chicken coop is coming along and hope you’ll post more on it soon.
