farmer eats, frigid temperatures edition

Ouch. Its early for below freezing temperatures both day and night. Hoping for a warming trend.

The hens are laying a few more eggs each day. As the levels of daylight increase so do their laying standards!

We have eggs available for our customers again. Not a lot yet, but that will happen, soon!

And on these days when it is 7° or 12° or ridiculous numbers like that, some eggs freeze in the nest boxes. We collect eggs more than once a day, but with temperatures this cold...

Some end up with hairline fractures as the egg itself freezes and expands. These eggs don't go into cartons they go into a bowl in our kitchen, and then we cook them up! There is nothing wrong with the egg. And it sure is cold.
