|Chicken coop for free range hens.|
|Hens graze during the day inside fence.|
|Four fresh eggs in the nest.|
|Nine freshly laid eggs.|
I can only remember once gathering eggs when I was a small child and my grandmother had some laying hens. So this was a new experience and a fun one.
On Monday morning we ate four of the eggs. The yolks were so bright yellow because the chickens are free range and eat a lot of plants during the day.
|The yolks are so bright yellow.|
I scrambled the eggs in a bit of butter---no garnishes of any kind---just pure scrambled eggs
We enjoyed the eggs with some Lunenburg pudding (the nearest thing they have here that resembles liver mush) and a fresh blueberry muffin made by our friend Michealette. What a good breakfast.
|Ready to eat.|
My younger son upon seeing some of the photos asked if we could have a chicken coop at our house in Raleigh. We could of course---one of close neighbors does. So he said we've got to make that happen. So once I get back to Raleigh I my end up with my very own chicken coop in the backyard.
