Our 25 mature hens are now laying an average of 20 eggs a day! Today they set a new record of 23. We passed our egg producer inspection last week so we will soon be getting our egg license. If anyone is in Champaign/Urbana or Chicago and would like a steady supply of organically fed, free range eggs let me know! We are producing 10 dozen eggs/week right now but by the end of April we will be producing as many as 40 dozen/week. We only have 4 female ducks for the time being but they've also started to lay: about a dozen/week.
Today my mother came to visit us from Chicago and she helped us get started on our brand new greenhouse. Hopefully it will be up by the end of the week...
