Nobody here but us chickens.|
Our flock, courtesy of oddmix and family. (A few special family birds will get the required veterinary certificates and follow them to Tennessee, but I think the bulk are staying here). We haven't had the time or spoons to finish their larger enclosure and Summer coop. Instead, I've been giving them free-range time in the evening. At dusk, Chickens return to their perches to roost without having to be caught. Wait for them to eat their fill, and then close the door behind them...convenient!
Production is up to almost a dozen eggs per day! prettypammie report the eggs are very tasty.
Where are you, again? The draw of real free range eggs is . . . immense.

Somewhere araund an hour and a half from you...
You are always welcome to come out and hang out on a weekend when you don't have dancing, etc., going on in-town--and take eggs home with you. Come out in the morning, and we'll even hold off collecting so that you can gather your own if you like. I think it makes for that extra "straight from the nest box to my plate" experience! :)
If you look at the map of Virginia we are in the tip-top-corner of Virginia, SE of Harpers Ferry, WV, and E of Charles Town, WV. I think it's pretty much a wash for you whether you come out the 270 corridor in Maryland or 267 through Virginia.
Greg takes his free-range eggs poached as eggs Benedict. Just so you know, when you're composing the room-service menu for the Imperial Suite.

I know "scrambled" and "over easy."
Wow, actual chickens...
