He was caught in the act. Larry was on the roof cleaning out the gutters, and I was around the back painting. He glanced down to the front lawn, and there was Jake working on his fifth egg. Then Larry watched him get up and head around the corner of the house by the front door. He had found a nest of eggs in the corner of a garden, up against the house.
Luna showed up to do some cleanup, while Jake tried to lay the blame elsewhere:)
Thankfully he survived the night with no desperate retching or pleas to go outside. They get fed eggs anyway, so I guess it wasn't too much of a shock to his system.
My original blurb is below. This blog was started to show some of our customers where their food is coming from. But...since there aren't actually many of our customers reading it, and just because I wanted to... this blog now is all over the map. Lots of dog stuff, places we go, things we do, and of course gardening and animal stuff, and whatever else I feel like rambling on about.
We live on a 10 acre hobby farm in the Bradner area of Abbotsford, British Columbia. We are vendors at the White Rock Farmer's market, selling a large variety of items. These include jams, jellies and marmalades, sewn items, free range eggs, cut flower bouquets, fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit. We grow organically, although are not certified organic. As of summer 2017, our hobby farm houses 2 humans, 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 ewe, and 80-99 laying hens.
