Eggsxellent News!

By Michael Imwalle

After months of anxious waiting, one of our beauties laid her first egg!

Yesterday while giving the hens a treat of watermelon and tomatoes I spied a white orb out of the corner of my eye, and low and behold it was the first egg from our Black Minorcan hens. Although it was small and the yolk was not as orange as I expected, it was deeeeeeliscious!

In peak production the hens will produce 4-6 eggs each per week. Look for these fresh organic eggs to show up on the menu at upcoming SBTHP events!
