If you’re not sure if your hens are laying eggs yet, there are some tell-tale signs you can look for.
In this podcast, I reveal my favorite ways to tell whether my hens are laying yet.
You can stand around and watch to see if an egg pops out (I’ve done that – you’ll be waiting a long time!) or you can look for some not-so-subtle signals.
I also reveal how to use up all those eggs she’ll lay (we get a LOT of eggs every day, so I’ve become a master at finding new ways to use them in things like quiches, fritattas, and super yummy egg custard).
Even better, we talk about how to preserve all those eggs, because eventually, she will stop laying. I didn’t preserve them last year, and really missed farm fresh eggs over the winter. I wish I had preserved some, and I’m making sure to do it this summer!
