All About Duck Eggs

in
How do duck eggs compare to chicken eggs? Well they're surprisingly similar - with a few glaring differences. We've raised ducks alongside our chickens for more than ten years. Ducks are a lot of fun to raise, but what we love best about them is their eggs. I had never even SEEN a duck egg before our ducks started laying them for us, so I didn't know what to expect.

Can Chickens Recognize Each Other?

Have you ever wondered if your chickens recognize you? Or can recognize other flocks members? It turns out that they can. Have you ever wondered whether or not your chickens recognize each other?

Top 12+ Common Myths about Eggs that Simply Aren't True

in
It's time to finally debunk these common myths about eggs that simply aren't true, for once and for all. Eggs are one of the best, and most affordable, sources of complete protein there is.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Garlic for Chickens

If you do nothing else besides feed your chickens, fill their waterers and collect their eggs, adding these two things to their water will reap you tremendous health benefits for your flock. I firmly believe in an ounce of prevention. In fact, wasn't it Benjamin Franklin who said "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"? He was a smart man - and I bet he wasn't even talking about chickens!


Rustic Fresh Peach Pie

When peaches are in season, this pie is an easy way to highlight their fresh sweetness.  I love to bake almost anything, but I think if I had to choose, then I would say that pies are my favorite thing to bake. Blueberry , apple , strawberry rhubarb - whatever fruit is in season, that's the kind of pie I'll bake. So imagine my delight when on a whim I stopped at a little roadside produce stand not far from our house and discovered fresh local peaches! Sun-ripened in the nearby orchard. They were decidedly smaller than ordinary peaches, but after purchasing almost 3 pounds in a brown shopping bag for the unbelievable price of just $2/pound, and sinking my teeth into one of the soft, fuzzy balls on the way home, I realized that I needed to make a peach pie to do them justice.
