Our co-operative egg farm, now known as Eastside Egg Co-operative, has been up and running for about a month now. We took delivery of 50 fine yearling Barred Rocks the day before summer Solstice, and the rest is hen-story.
The coop seems to be working just fine. There are some kinks to work out, some wheels to install, and so on, but for now it is doing what it is supposed to.
Last week was our first week at a farmers market to sell our modest surplus of eggs. We sold out!
I’ve been taking a lot of photos—click on the above and below images to see more. Someday we might even write about this experience more extensively, but right now it’s high summer and the chickens are laying and the business is booming, so there’s more doing than there is writing about doing.
Enjoy the photos and come visit sometime.
