About our eggs

Eggs are unwashed and ungraded. They are collected twice a day and refrigerated. Wash under running warm water before boiling or cracking.
We found the eggs stay fresh longer when we keep them dry and avoid washing them.
And they go bad faster when they become wet and stay wet due to condensation.

Our duck eggs come from seven Silver Appleyard hens. Our hens stay with four Silver Appleyard drakes. They’re in a portable pen that provides shade, wind protection, and sunlight. We move them twice a day. They love a new patch of grass, weeds, and bugs. Their daily ration is Purina Layena pellets, whole oats, and crushed oyster shells. We add a vitamin and mineral supplement to one water bucket during laying season.

Our goose eggs come from a flock of three Toulouse geese. We know at least one is a goose. And we know at least one is a gander. This pen was five geese. Someone stole two birds in May 2019. They’re in a smaller portable pen. We move them twice a day. And they love a new patch of grass. Their daily ration is Purina Layena pellets, whole oats, and crushed oyster shells. They tend to molt and stop laying in mid-May. We have a crippled goose. We suspect a niacin deficiency as a gosling crippled the bird. She holds her own and is quite opinionated.

About our packaging

We use Tri-Fold PET plastic egg cartons. Because they are reusable and simple to clean. Please return egg cartons.
