Yeah, we've been buying eggs cause our lil' chickens haven't started laying yet, and we only have 2 adult hens left and only one of them is laying consistently now...but luckily our store bought eggs are organic and not in the recall. Can't wait till the little ones start earning their keep...should be soon!

Too funny! I thought the same thing earlier when I heard about the salmonella outbreak.

SciFiChick said...

It had me thinking too...and then I remembered I am OUT of eggs! I think we are safe. :)

Brenda said...

did you hear the number they recalled already, like 2 mil, I think. I better call my friend that raises chickens. oh, love the birthday cake, and I'll put my order in for one next June! :-)))

Well the price of fresh eggs just went up! To bad my chickens are only laying 3-4 a day.. SOme of my young ones are starting but the heat has affected them some..

What do you mean "don't look bad now"?

I thought people bought eggs at the store because they lived in the city and weren't allowed to own chickens.

Agreed! I'm very happy that my cluckers lay enough ( between 3 - 6 a day ) for my family to eat in a normal week. I feel very fortunate we're able to have them on our property!

And they taste so much better too!

Grandpa said...

I think farm-laid eggs and free range chicken are the best. I look forward to the day my chick starts to lay eggs. If you see from my blog I have some way to go, but I am patient enough...

I'm waiting for the lady that told me that i was asking too high of a price for my free range eggs. i was asking $2.00 a doz, she told me that she can get them at WlMart for $1.29. I wonder what she's thinking now!

Wendy said...

I feel so out of the loop. What recall? Salmonella ... what?

R Dean said...

Can't wait to get our first egg...keeping our fingers crossed it will be soon!!!

Oh my goodness! I just read Aunt Krissy's comment and was going to say the exact same thing. Except it was my neaighbor who balked at paying $2.00 a doz for my freshly laid organic, free range eggs.
She bragged at how she bought her factory raised chicken eggs at our local grocery store for only $1.00 a dozen.
It didn't matter to her how those poor chickens lived their miserable lives or how old the eggs were when they finally reached the store.
She also couldn't appreciate how much it costs my family to buy feed and scratch for my chickens while cleaning their coop, refilling and cleaning water tanks, trimming nails, controlling any pests, gathering eggs and just caring for them every day, hands-on.

$2.00 is still cheap for fresh, free range organic eggs, but it's crazy when some folks just only look at the cost factor.
Well, there the ones either suffering with sickness or losing their $1.00 when they have to throw away all their store bought eggs....
