"chickens that lay 16 eggs a day, which is a lot for a chicken"

Now that all our hens are laying we get a ton of eggs a day.  Or is it a gaggle?  anyway, whoa.  I mean that was actually the point of getting more chickens...more eggs.  but dude, collecting them is becoming a pain. If I had know what i was getting in to I'd have taken up juggling first.  It's all part of the "amy needs to plan better" initiative.  Take the carton in to the coop.  Cook food to take for lunch so you don't end up buying and then eating cheetos for lunch.  Cheetos, uhm, bright and orange but not actually having the nutrients.

Its going to be a long week at work, short handed everywhere and probably very quiet.  I have a book and that'll probably be the highlight of the week.  that and pie.  i'll keep you posted.

So... what the heck do you do with all those eggs?

I was going to make a joke about my cholesterol but actually we sell most of them. We feed and care for them and sell the eggs for three dollars a dozen. We break even with a few free eggs for ourselves a week but our customers get ridiculously fresh eggs from cage free but not free range hens. You wouldn't believe the demand, even with more chickens we can't keep up.
