Fancy plastic egg container

I splurged on a fancy plastic egg holder for the fridge.  This one is by Fridge Binz.  Pretty cool.  And bleachable -- which is important because we put the eggs straight from the coop into the fridge without rinsing off the bloom (which also means we don't rinse off the poo).  
This was a complete luxury because certainly free cardboard ones work just a well.  But it's so pretty and clean...

The Mysterious Production of Eggs

video
Somebody laid a weird one!  This egg had only a soft, squishy "shell".  We gave the girls some more oyster shells for calcium in case this is a symptom of that.  More likely, it's just a weird, one-off.

Awesome new urban farming shop in Clintonville

We just stopped by City Folks up in Beechwold and it was really great. It's a cute little locally owned shop with rain barrel supplies, gardening, bee keeping, cheese making & chicken feeding supplies too. Check em out!
