Home Grown Eggs

I was reading recently in the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) Magazine “Habitat” about the benefits of keeping chickens for the free-range eggs, which they lay. Apparently “research suggests that backyard eggs, compared to factory farm eggs, have 25% more Vitamin E, 1/3 more Vitamin A, 75% more beta carotene and significantly more Omega 3 fatty acids.” (Source: Habitat Vol 39 No 1,January 2011)

Of course they give an endless supply of manure too, which can be put to good use in the garden and is great for the veggies.

Keeping chooks is a wonderful addition to an eco-friendly lifestyle. And chooks make great pets. I spend hours watching mine in my backyard.

If you don’t want to keep your own, Jasminka offers biodynamic free-range eggs for trade. You couldn’t get any purer than that! Jasminka will also help with designing a chook house if you are thinking about getting some. Give her a call and try her yummy eggs.
