The Easter bunny might be hiding your eggs, but he isn’t producing them. As I’m preparing to decorate Easter eggs this afternoon, I can’t help but think that many of those hardboiled eggs that are being dyed various colors probably came from Indiana.
Fun Fact: Indiana ranks NO. 3 in top egg producing states.
I don’t come from a poultry farm, but we do have around 20 hens and roosters. They produce plenty of eggs for our family, and we’re able to give some away to friends. And when this time of year rolls around, I don’t have to go very far to find and decorate my Easter eggs.
This hen recently surprised us and hatched five chicks under our front porch. Around 20 weeks from now these chicks will be laying their own eggs.
