I bet some of you saw this coming. I have eggs up the wazoo….!!! Reality of it is: we have 12 chicks. Matt, always thinking ahead of the game, thought: surely one or two are not going to make it. I mean it’s the law of nature, the survival of the fittest, not all living things come to fruition…you get the idea. Not here….all 12 little chicks have made it to 12 “producing, laying, eating and then some” chickens….ALL 12 of them are laying eggs on a regular basis.
Let’s talk about the math of having 12 laying chicks for a household of 4 peeps. (pause: I went and got my calculator!)
So during the course of a week: 7 days (glad I got that right)
12 chicks: laying 1 egg each every 26 hours or so.
7 days x 24 hours per day (I wish there was more…hours that is)= 168 hours per week
168 hrs per week divided by 26 hours (time needed for a chick to lay)= 6.5 eggs each chick per week
6.5 eggs each chick x 12 chicks= 78 eggs EACH week.
On average an “normal” household of 4 peeps will go through a dozen eggs per week….what do you do with the remainder 66 eggs? You give them away…to family and friends.
So if you’ve had the pleasure of me coming to you with a carton of eggs, just know that I have more….a lot more coming! Let me know if you can taste the difference, we sure can! I wish I could send every single blog reader a dozen eggs…alas you will have to simply enjoy the recipes from my multitude of eggs!
Peace and Wazoo,
Just a little note: Please, pretty please….return the cartons because I will have to give eggs in grocery sacks….just sayin’ 🙂
