  • Are your chickens free-range?
    Yes! Except during very bad weather, or those rare vacations, our girls get to roam the pastures as they please. We lure them back to the coops at night to keep them safe, but otherwise, they free-range daily!
  • Are your eggs organic?
    Unfortunately, an organic certification would be way too costly for our tiny farm. However, we do not use any pesticides (as evidenced by our weed-filled lawn), and our girls eat only what they can find on our land, as well as an organic feed supplement for when they are feeling...peckish.
  • Do the eggs need to be washed?
    Yes! We wipe down the eggs when we collect them each night, and while not necessary, we strongly recommend you wash your eggs and refrigerate them as soon as you get them home. Here is a great article from one of our favorite learning websites:
  • How do I store my eggs?
    After washing your eggs in warm water, and drying them with a paper towel, place them in your refrigerator immediately. Washing the eggs removes the protective coating, which mean refrigeration is a MUST.
  • How long will my eggs last?
    Washed and refrigerated eggs will last two to three months in the refrigerator. Washed eggs must be used within 2 hours when leaving them at room temperature.
  • How can I tell if my eggs are good?
    The float test! (Thanks for the visual, Chickens and More:
  • Stinky eggs?
    Toss them! A bad egg will smell bad even before it is cracked. Do not use it! Also, if you see any black or green spots, or a pinkish tinge to the yolk, you need to toss those eggs out.
