I put the egg on the ground for safekeeping while I cleaned up some dog poop.
After just finishing off half a moldy tub of cottage cheese the hens were still interested in the egg. White Hen pecked at it, but the shell was too tough for just one peck.
That’s when I took the egg back, knowing it wouldn’t last long now that the hens were on to it.
I scrambled it for breakfast with some goat cheese from Caz Acres, dill from Bernard Farm and yogurt from the Argyle Cheese Farmer. All local farmers. Then I sauteed a potato and kale from the garden and had it all for breakfast.
I thought it a good trade, the egg for a tub of moldy cottage cheese. I’m not sure how the hens felt.
