This afternoon, I'm hard boiling some of our sudden over abundance of eggs. My husband loves a good hard boiled egg (or 2) every morning for breakfast. Besides that, I really want to try making some pickled eggs. After seeing @hutchhopsheritagefarm post the other day, I can't wait to try! I'm thinking these may help me through the Spring while I'm out of my fridge pickles and am (impatiently) awaiting my cucumber harvest! . . But how do you make the perfect Hard Boiled Egg? One that turns out just right AND peels without effort? It's easier than you think! . . I use my Instant Pot with the trivet in the bottom. Add a cup of water and about a tablespoon of white vinegar (I use a decent splash as I measure nothing I don't have to). The white vinegar is the trick to being able to peel the eggs easily! Then I add the eggs, typically 2 dozen at a time. Set the IP to Manual for 5 minutes and when that is complete, natural pressure release (NPR) for about 10 minutes. Then I personally take them out, put them in a carton and into the fridge. You can also put them in ice water for 5 minutes, then to the fridge. Hubby says they're no more cooked than if I do put them under the ice water, so I don't. . . I also put my eggs into the IP just like I store them, point down. This ensures the air pocket on top and that's a great point to crack the egg for even easier peeling! . . Hope this helps even one person out! I'll keep y'all posted on the pickled eggs! . . . #hardboiledeggs #fresheggs #farmfresh #instantpot #easypeasy #homesteadlife #homestead #homesteadingsavedme #colorfuleggs #farmfreshdaily #womenwhohomestead #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadersofinstagram #homesteading #homesteadlifebestlife

Current situation: rain, mud, and dirty but beautiful eggs. Such is life ✨. . . Despite the rain, we are going to start assembling our greenhouse in the garage today 🙌🏻. We recently invested in a greenhouse so that we don’t have to use our garage as a makeshift seed starting workshop. We’re already feeling a bit behind on seed starting, so we are anxious to get this thing built and in working order! I’m sure we are in for quite the challenging #teambuilding experience today 😬 so wish us luck! . . #colorfuleggs #freerangechickens #fresheggs #farmfresh #muddyeggs #layinghens #rainboweggs #hobbyfarm #rainydays #rainydayactivities #raisingchickens #farmsweetfarm #farmprojects #eggsofinstagram #eggstagram

Day 53 of 365: Everybody loves a good bout of sunshine after a bunch of rain...even the chickens. 🌦🐓Lots of bugs are easy to grab in the softened soil 🐌🐛🕷and the grass is freshened with rainwater. 🌱Plus, nothing beats the sun’s enveloping warmth. 🌞 We think our chickens have a pretty happy life here, and they show it with the orange-yolked eggs they lay each day! 🥚🧡🥚 . . . #dailyfarmlog #day52 #year1 #redwattlewednesday @rogerscreekfarm #tableblufffarm #chickens #chickensofinstagram #pasturedhens #girlsongrass #freerange #colorfuleggs #insects #humboldt #humboldtcounty #farmlife #orangeyolks at Table Bluff Farm

It is a very exciting week here! I dropped off 5 dozen farm fresh eggs to my neighbors and paid for all my chicken feed at the store today! I have found it is the most sustainable way to fund chicken addiction. I hope you all have a wonderful Friday friends. 🐓✨ Ps- my carton stamp is from @boxwoodavenue. Chloe will make the perfect stamp for your farm and custom egg cartons. at Lincoln, California

Happy Friday! Rain, rain, go away! I’m not sure about you all, but we are drenched here in Central Virginia. And after yesterday’s reprieve, it’s raining AGAIN. This year alone, we are on our way to seven inches of rain. Last year we endured 63.5 inches of rain - more than Seattle. All farmers across Virginia are praying for sunny skies and fewer rain drops! . The hens are NOT disappointing! Look at this week’s colors! Every time I go to the egg boxes I get giddy...like a child in a candy store. Mike says the number one reason he doesn’t collect the eggs is bc it seems to make me happy. 😉Smart guy! I keep hoping one of my Marans will produce the deep chocolate color eggs... to no avail. So I’m resorting to PLAN B. I’m certain our new arrival of chicks (this week) will help me fill our #eggrainbow! . Sharing w/ @happydaysfarm #eggvignette! at Dinwiddie, Virginia

The chickens are finally picking back up on laying. But our nice neighbor's chickens have not yet so while he incubates a bunch of ours, we make sure to keep him stocked up.

Y’all!! Look at this pretty thing I found in the nesting box this morning!! 😍 Looks like Roscoe was as excited as I was!! (Swipe!!) Anybody have any guesses who this may have come from?? I have 3 pullets who are just about at laying age. A Easter Egger...🙅🏻‍♀️ (better not be hers! Lol), a blue Cochin (never seen her near a nesting box), and a cuckoo maran (who’s been laying for about a month, but her eggs normally have splotches of brown pigment, not white) So I’m guessing it’s hers because the color is so similar...can the splotches change colors?? Swipe to see photo of this egg between two eggs that I know are hers!! She’s my fist cuckoo maran and I was told her eggs will get darker as she gets older. Tell me what y’all think 😊 #homesteadliving #countryside #countryvibes #freerange #freerangeeggs #colorfuleggs #freerangechickens #backyardchickens #chickens #crazychickenlady #spoliedrotten #chickensofinstagram #wyandotte #farmfresheggs #texashens #prettybocks #cooptotable #homestead #homesteading #homesteadlife #texashomestead

Hey friends! What has everyone been up to?! We’ve been in overdrive lately between work, family, and starting our spring prep. Most of our farm tasks have been getting done after work which means after dark, so we sadly haven’t had a chance to photograph our projects or our furry and feathered friends a whole lot. I’ve got the elusive day off today, but we are in the midst of non-stop cold rain, so I’ll be catching up on various indoor tasks while simultaneously trying to collect eggs before they all get covered in mud 🥚. . This egg is from one of our marans hens, who despite being less than a year old have proven to be quite inconsistent layers. So, in attempts to remedy that problem, we ordered some more! 😬 They were originally supposed to arrive to us last week, but because of unexpected events requiring us to travel out of state, we had to reschedule our shipment to the first week of May. Shout out to the kind folks at @cacklehatchery for being so understanding and allowing us to reschedule our shipment free of charge due to the extenuating circumstances. However, we are still expecting the arrival of our cream legbar, welsummer, and easter egger chicks this week from @meyer_hatchery 🐥🙌🏻. I got the brooder all set up and did a temperature trial run last night and it held steady between 95-100 degrees F so we are ready!! Spring is so close! . . #fresheggs #farmfresh #freerangechickens #browneggs #frenchblackcoppermarans #FBCM #happinessishomegrown #lifeouthere #farmsweetfarm #raisingchickens #springprep #farmprojects #farmlife #hobbyfarm #eggsofinstagram #eggstagram #colorfuleggs

We eat a lot of eggs in our family... Makes sense right? I mean, we have a bazillion chickens, afterall, and they're not just lawn art. 😂 I mean, THEY ARE but we also eat a ton of eggs. Okay, moving on... 😂🙈 We have a designated sheet pan for cracked eggs and a little running joke that when the pan is full its time for me to bake something, usually some lovely salty, crunchy homegrown fries or scratch made cookies or tart or something else #noshable to fill our evening with ....BUT!!!... It's #bread week over at @iamcountryside so I most definitely have been slaving over one heaping mound of growing gluten, 5 rises later....it's alllmost in the oven. Can't wait to show you what I whipped up today. #staytuned - Also...these ameraucana eggs!! The snowy sky made them look oh so alluring 😍 science fact: the snow allows the eggs to appear hyper blue because of the absorption of both red and yellow light (leaving light at the blue end of the visible light spectrum) like how a glacier appears blue. Pretty cool, ehh??😂 - - - #eggbasketcollective #eggart #backyardpoultrymag #iamcountryside #rainboweggs #eggbasket #farmfresheggs #tastetherainbow #eggrainbow #farmtotable #eggenvy #supportlocal #foodphotography #prettysquares #rustymoosefarm #pnwfarm #homesteading #westernwafarm #oliveeggs #beautifulsquares #beautyintheeveryday #countrylivingmag #colorfuleggs #freggles #farmhouse #hatchingeggs

I love me lots of egggs! And lots of colorful eggs! The problem is I am selling out of almost all of my eggs lately. Which is a good thing! But the chickens that I ordered for March are all super fun laying chickens. Marans, Ameraucanas, and a few polish! Which now I’m thinking maybe I should have ordered some more production laying chicks again. Like my faithful barred rocks and black australorps. So I’m thinking I may try my hand at hatching some of my eggs. We have to fix the fan in the incubator I have first. I got this automatic incubator for $20 because it was broken. After buying a $15 fan I’ll have a total of $35 invested and this incubator is easily over $100 new so I’m pumped! We will see how fixing the fan in it goes! But in the meantime I’ll keep gazing on my current beautiful eggs! Do you have any chicks on order for this spring? • • • • • • • • • • • • #eggvignette #colorfuleggs #backyardchickens #eastereggers #barredrocks #blackaustralorps #growingyourownfood #homesteadinglife #homesteadersofamerica #homesteadersofnewyork #upstatenyhomestead #theporterhomestead

Baby's first egg! I posted in stories yesterday about how one of our easter eggers laid her first egg yesterday. It was hard to see the color of the shell so here you go. It's a little smaller than the Cochins who have been laying for about six months now, but that's to be expected. The varying colors of the eggs makes me happy, which is why we got the two easter eggers. I think the other one may start laying in a week or so. * Also I love this egg rack I got on Amazon. When you take the egg from the bottom it always ensures you are using the oldest egg. And it looks pretty sitting out.

#NoFilter 💛❤💚 Lovin the egg baskets our girls are giving us! 💙💗💜 We're doing some rearranging of a couple hens to be sure we know who lays what. Breeding for egg color & genetic traits is important for us and that means knowing exactly which hen lays exactly which egg! 🌻🌿🌸 I'm also not minding the beautiful greens & other vibrant colors popping up around us recently! 😊 . . . #EggBasket #ColorfulEggs #ChickenEggs #BlueEggs #BrownEggs #SpringIsAlmostHere #FlowersPoppingUp #BreedingPrograms #EachEggIsUnique #UniqueEggs

All four hens are now laying, so we finally have enough to share with our new neighbor. Eggs are a good “welcome to the neighborhood” gift, right?

Eggs are back baby! It's been a long hard season of hunting predators and losing birds. But the girls are working through their trama and squeezed out 26 beauties today! That small guy in the front...that's a first egg from one of the new crop. I'll happily take this sign of spring especially on a nasty cold day.

:On Valentines Day I received some unconditional love❤️ in the mail📦! I received 12 Sapphire Olive Eggers and 6 Midnight Majesty Marans 🐣. One of each didn’t make it, but God knew best and the rest of them are healthy and doing well. I’m too excited to see the add colors that the chicks are going to add to the nesting boxes once they get old enough to start popping them out🥚! Thank you to @hoovershatchery for all their professional help with info on the chicks and the polite customer service they provided. #godsflock #godsflockfarms #midnightmajestymarans #sapphiregemoliveeggers #colorfuleggs #colorfulegg #colorfuleggbasket #chickeneggs #organiceggs #organiceggsonly #organiceggs🍳 #healthyeggs #freerangechickenegg #freerangeeggs #freerangechickeneggs #freerangechicken #freerangechickens #organiceggsonly #chicken #chickens #chickenlovers #chickenlover #chickenlove #farm #henhouse #henhouses #henhouselife #henhousehappenings #MyPetChicken at Brunswick, New York

Just look at this beautiful little egg! 😍 We got a second one that seems more definitely on the green side of blue-green. I guess I need to officially add some blue egg layers to the mix next year!
