I sold two of my march hatch pullets and picked up these two Breda fowl.
They look like vultures and have no combs. Pretty cool looking chickens. They are dutch, and I got them from a breeder who is getting out of the breed as she shows barnevelder and welsummer chickens. After the Ohio show she is giving me a few more hens.

They were born this spring. They are very quiet, prefer to hang in the coop instead of out in the pen. They have vulture hock feathers and a cool Mohawk hairdo lol...their legs and feet are feathered. They lay a medium.white egg.

Supposedly some of the woman's flock came from the Netherlands.

I just give the extra eggs to people at work. Your flock has to be tested to legally sell them here. We feef organic and our land has been pesticide/herbicide free for over ten years . Organic certification is pricey and people will not pay the 4 bucks plus per dozen that they bring at the store. Most people don't care or are clueless.

I'm npip and ai tested by the state,but here you don't need it to sell eggs. What I did was I gave all my extra eggs that I couldn't eat to the farm stand a few blocks away. Told the guy to sell them for whatever he wanted.i didn't take any money from him. When Halloween came around he gave me his prices on a case if Indian glass corn and a case of decorative gourds. It worked out perfect trade..

Yeah we don't use pesticides either, and my chickens are loose all the time (except the past 3 weeks due to the hawks migrating, they tried to take out 2 of my chickens so for now they are locked up in their pens).



Of course they are molting now,and with shorter daylight not laying as much, so I figured ok time to deworm.... so I deworm both coops and they decide to pump out eggs.. which can't be eaten for 2 weeks due to the dewormer meds..... so I had all these pretty eggs I couldn't eat or sell lol..

So they got scrambled eggs and I tossed the shells in the garden

Gotta love trading - may be some more people willing to trade out.
I buy organic eggs and I know I am going to pay more for them then regular eggs.

I have a 20 ounce crock pot lunch tote --
( Crock-Pot SCCPLC200-R 20-Ounce Lunch Crock Food Warmer, Red ) Crock-Pot
And I like to mix up a vegetable omlet and pour it into the crock pot. I take
it to work with me and plug it in. In about two hours it is cooked and ready
to eat. I think the omlet tastes better with better eggs. I make a three egg
omlet - that is only a $1.00 plus left over veggies - what a deal and very
filling. Sure beats these $7 - $10 dollar lunches. Throw in a slices or two of
100% whole grain bread and it is a perfect lunch. :D

You pay that much for eggs?omg. Are they truly organic? There is chiropractic dr here thst I saw,she bragged to me she sold her eggs as organic for $7 a doz only cause she used the local feed farms food..which isn't organic.. she lies to customers and says the eggs are organic when they arent. I was shocked. Needless to say I never saw her again after that first visit

I usually get mine from Walmart and they are $4.47 (just checked) a dozen.
But my husband works with a nurse who has some chickens and when we can,
we get them from her as she raises her chickens in the free range style.
