- A crazy chicken story to share
- Wanted to follow up on Cusick House Honey Ale
- Provide a spring planting update – yup it is that time!
First the crazy chicken story… Every once in a while life gets interesting out here on the farm and I begin to wonder what the heck we are feeding our chickens! As many of my family can attest we have some of the best free range egg’s around, but this one still has Huz and I scratching our heads. Last week Huz collected the eggs and one was a MONSTER egg… It was HUGE, like 2 and a half times as big as a regular egg, we weighted it with our food scale, it came in a just over 1/3 of a pound or 5.78 ounces. WOW. See picture below!!!
That poor chicken must be sore! Next, we had to crack it open to see if it was a single, double, or the VERY rare triple yoke… and it was not any!!! Much to our surprise, it was a single yoke with another whole egg, shell and all on the inside. What the H? It was crazy… see picture below, it is worth a thousand words. Never a dull moment around here!
Next on the list – we finally cracked into our Cusick House Honey Ale, it is full of flavor & delicious for our first attempt into home brewing. We have already thought of a few tweaks for the next time we brew this recipe but for now, excellent start. Goes great with pizza, popcorn, chili… the list goes on!
Last but not least the Garden… for those of you out there who are seed starters for your garden now is the time to start some. We are starting our rocket snapdragons for cut flowers and early tomatoes for our cold frame this weekend (3.2.13). Hold off on starting the tomatoes if you are not planing on transferring them to a cold frame, our August harvest tomatoes are started more mid March/early April, will keep you updated on the planting timeline.
Please let me know if you have any comments or questions and thanks for letting me share our crazy chicken story! Enjoy ~ Megan
