Gathering Eggs

First thing every morning the boys and I go gather eggs. It is one of the most fun jobs I have on the farm. It is like an Easter egg hunt every day!  We gather them up, bring them into the kitchen at the farm and wash them in a sink of water. Then we put them on this re-purposed oven rack to dry. It doesn't take long for them to dry before we put them in cartons, then into the fridge that is set aside just for eggs. The people who have standing orders of eggs have a label with their name on it and how many they get each week. These days the hens are in full production and the orders are quickly filled. When the eggs are put away we sanitize the sink and rack to keep everything clean and healthy. Aren't they pretty? My favorites are the green ones. :)
