Don't Feed Guacamole to your Chickens!

There are lots of healthy chicken treats you can offer to your flock. However, guacamole isn't one of them. Chickens can ( and will! ) eat almost anything. As omnivores (meaning animals that obtain nutrients and energy from both plant and animal matter), chickens who are offered a wide variety of foods as treats will be happier and lay more nutritious, delicious eggs.


The Secret of How to Peel Fresh Hard-Boiled Eggs

in
There's a secret to perfectly peeled farm fresh eggs which are notoriously difficult to remove from their shells. Never boil your eggs again! Using my tips, you'll find that there's some "eggy magic" that happens, which makes removing the shells so easy ensuring that your eggs will peel perfectly. Every. Single. Time. I love hard-boiled eggs.  I like to keep a container of them in the fridge to grab throughout the day when I get hungry for a quick, nutritious - and delicious - snack or to make up a batch of deviled eggs. The one downside to farm  fresh eggs is how hard they are to peel.


Two-Ingredient Egg Chaffles

A "chaffle" is a two-ingredient egg and cheese waffle that contains no flour, baking powder or other ingredients, making them perfect for low carb or keto diets. I generally ignore stuff that goes viral on Tiktok or elsewhere on social media because, honestly, by the time I find out about it, it's already passe and the masses have moved onto the next latest and greatest trend. 


6 Best Natural Plant Dyes for Easter Eggs

It's easy to dye Easter eggs using natural plant dyes made from foods you probably already have in your pantry or kitchen.  Dyeing eggs at Easter is a time-honored tradition in many cultures. You can make it even more natural and creative when you use veggies and spices from your kitchen and pantry to color the eggs.  There's no need to use commercial dyes or food coloring. It's healthier for your kids and chickens, and more economical to use plants - specifically vegetable peels and skins - especially if you grow your own veggies.

Adding some ducks to your backyard chicken flock is as easy as just adding water! Well, not really. But it's not difficult at all, as long as you follow these tips. Since releasing my new cookbook, The Fresh Eggs Daily Cookbook , I've been receiving lots of questions about cooking and baking with duck eggs. I do discuss using duck eggs instead of chicken eggs in the cookbook - and explain how duck eggs are actually better for baking because of their higher fat content.

How to Herbify Your Chicken Flock

Several years ago, I chatted with Justin Rhodes about adding herbs to his chicken flock management program - in other words, how to "herbify" his flock. Here are some of the highlights of that conversation. Justin Rhodes, author of The Rooted Life coming soon to bookstores nationwide, and founder of Abundant Permaculture has emerged as a leader in the permaculture movement over the last couple of years. I have had the honor of meeting him and his family several times since we both began our chicken keeping journey. A couple of years ago, Justin and I sat down to chat about how to "herbify" your chicken flock. Something I have been doing for more than a decade with my own flock and that I outline in more detail in my first book Fresh Eggs Daily: Raising Happy, Healthy Chickens Naturally .   Below are some of the highlights of that conversation. How to Herbify your Chicken Flock Justin started out by saying, "I’ve got some confessions to make.  First of all, I

It's so hearty and robust, you won't even miss the meat. The earthy mushroom has been named the " ingredient of the year" for 2022 by The New York Times, so in honor or that, I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes from my new The Fresh Eggs Daily Cookbook.
