Eggs are brown and usually extra large. I usually sell them a dozen at a time but would be happy to sell then individually. Chicken eggs are a staple of our farm share. We have an eclectic mix of chickens at the farm. Most of our laying hens are third generation "Test Pilot" chickens hatched here.
When we purchased the farm in 2009 we didn't want to make a huge investment until we knew exactly what predators we were up against and the safety of the barn. We purchased 10 young hens of various breeds from Stick and Stone farm and a rose combed rooster who we named doodle. Doodle was raised by a boy in Cortlandville NY and was very much a pet. He was a glossy coral bird not quite red and not quite orange. A year later we had 2 roosters, Doodle and his son Sunny. One evening we assumed the they had been fighting but later realized they had defended their flock of hens from a maurader, probably a weasel. We are proud of our roosters and their ability to work as a team. This year we have a new flock of young birds from that same genetic line and are hoping that Sunny will have a young rooster to help him with his chores - defending the ladies, finding and announcing food sources to them as well as looking grand as all roosters do.
