Mad about Eggs

Chickens and self-sufficiency go together like boiled eggs and bread and butter, or bacon and eggs. Every morning you will be presented with fresh eggs – warm, tasty, beautiful, and just about as clean and green as food can get! (The Self-Sufficiency Handbook by Alan and Gill Bridgewater)

After four months of waiting, two of our hens have started laying eggs.  We are now getting an average of 4 to 5 eggs a week.  We need about 5 a day to feed our crew on site and perhaps another 20 a week to share with our friends and family.

  1. Hmm…. it’s actually brewing in the background. We need to learn more first before starting this one. There’s a hive with a queen bee identified, problem is… how do we do the logistics without breaking up the colony??

  2. Hello

    I see that you have read our Self-Sufficiency book

    but have your read ECO KIDS SELF-SUFFICIENCY?

    best wishes

    • Wow! Hi Alan! I do not have a copy of ECO KIDS SELF-SUFFICIENCY but I will definitely check it out the next time I am at the bookstore. We will need ideas for the community project we will be starting soon. We will be building a permaculture children garden near the lodge.
