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.


One-Pot Cacio e Pepe

Whip up this deliciously comforting, classic pasta dinner in just one pot with just four basic ingredients: pasta, Parmesan cheese, butter and black pepper. Cacio e Pepe is a classic Italian pasta dish that translates literally to "cheese and pepper" and if you have both of those ingredients plus some pasta and butter, you've got the makings of this delicious, but deceptively simple, classic pasta dinner.


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? Or recognize you?  Could a chicken, say, pick you out of a lineup? Or do you ever wonder if - treats notwithstanding - they are actually happy to see you when you come home from work?


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. They are packed with vitamins and nutrients, including Vitamin D and lutein.   Eggs are so versatile, called for in scads of recipes , both sweet and savory, and are quick to cook up. 


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. I used my go-to Pate Brisee recipe which is a simple pie crust that whips up in no time in your food processor, and added just enough sugar to the peaches to accentuate their natural sweetness.  A dash of s

Basic bio-security to prevent the spread of salmonella, Escherichia coli (E. coli), staph, and other pathogens is critical when you raise backyard chickens.

How to Identify Common Chicken Predators

Not long after you start keeping chickens, every predator in the neighborhood will have your coop on their radar.  In fact, one of the hardest things about keeping chickens is keeping them safe from predators, but if you can figure out what you're faced with, it can make discouraging, trapping or otherwise dealing with them far easier.


Modern Red, Black and Silver Vibrant Metal Wall Wave Accent - Ab

If egg production is your primary goal from your backyard chickens, then you can't go wrong with any of these breeds that are known for their egg laying prowess. I think most of us raise chickens for several reasons. Of course fresh eggs are a part of it, but some choose breeds that lay different color eggs , some choose family-friendly breeds .  Others are interested in breeds that will do well in hot climates , or those that thrive in cold climates . 


How To Get Better Tasting Eggs from your Chickens
