backyard chickens

fresh eggs

Some of you may be familiar with another local blog, The (Not So) Urban Hennery, written by my friend Laura McCrae. I am happy to announce that, two weeks from now, Laura will be giving a talk at my workplace, the Mount Vernon City Library, on raising chickens. And given that I’ve been buying rather transcendently wonderful eggs from Laura every week, I can tell you she knows how to take good care of chickens.

Yes, it’s a Monday night, but it doesn’t run that late. Come on out and show your support, visit the library and maybe learn something about chickens! And perhaps we’ll go out for a beer afterwards.

  1. The eggs we have been buying from Laura are truly fabulous. Not sure what we’re going to do once we reach the end of the school year and I’m no longer conveniently placed for her to deliver them. It’s going to be tough to go back to store-bought eggs. Even the free-range organic eggs at the store are a far cry from Laura’s. They have to be – for one thing, they’re almost certainly older.

  2. Wow – thank you for the feature, the invitation and the compliments on the eggs! And that photo, with the feather? Wow!

    Can’t wait until the 17th. The girls are negotiating for who gets to come along and have their 15 minutes of fame… 🙂

    1. You’re very welcome! I was so delighted to open that carton and see the feather hanging onto one egg – I just had to take a picture. Tell the girls we’re looking forward to meeting them 🙂
