Our Response to the Bird Flu

Have you bought eggs recently?  I usually have quite a stash in our fridge, so when I went to buy eggs today I about died!  And we have a location to buy eggs (typically) at a great price!

Eggs more than doubled, all in response to the recent bird flu epidemic.

I only bought one dozen because we were clean out of eggs.  Yes, I want to buy farm fresh, free range eggs…but I am also quite budget conscience…and while I fully agree that we will pay for health in either our grocery bill or doctor bill…we have to eat and we have cut out 99% of processed foods.

We know someone who sells free range brown eggs and now they are totally a bargain, thanks to the bird flu!  So that is what we will be buying, until….we get our own fresh eggs!!

We recently bought a gorgeous house, and just brought home baby chicks!  We are going to have back yard chickens!!!  I am so excited!  Hubby grew up with chickens; I am so grateful that he will be able to teach me all I need to know about our egg laying pets.  ;)

So, that is our response to the rising cost of eggs!  Albeit, indirectly…as we got the chicks before we knew about the bird flu.  Who else has backyard chickens?

Blessings & JOY ~

  1. I had laying hens in my early 20s and I loved it! I want to get some now but don’t live in a place that allows it. Maybe in the future. Which breeds did you get? I’ve already decided if the opportunity came I would get Buff Orpingtons.

    • We have Rhode Island Reds…as that is what my hubby is partial to. ;) One is lighter, and we are still wondering if it might be a Buff… They are so cute! I am so glad that our city lets us have “backyard chickens” where we live!
