Doak, what do you feed if you want the hens to lay boiled eggs already peeled? It sure would save some time.

Ha, now I gotta stick around to hear the answer, smiling, wonder what Doak will say to this one, smiling.  Have that great day, Cindi

               Pickled Beets and Eggs

6-12 hard cooked eggs, peeled
8 small beets, cooked peeled and quartered or one 15 ounce can whole beets, drained.
1 1/2 cups apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
1/2 red onion sliced


Is it OK to substitute canned sliced beets?

I did Jerry and it was fine.
Make sure you tell use how they came out. My husband was just eating some of those last night. He loves them. The apple cider vinegar smells a little strong, but its suppose to be good for you.

By the way everyone, remember when I set those olive egger eggs? I had 6 olive eggers hatch between last night and today.
These were from a cross between my black copper marans rooster and my easter egger hen.
They came out looking alot like the marans, black with white throats and bellies and feathered shanks.
They are suppose to lay a very deep olive egg with speckles.

Natalie, those sound very cute, you will have to post pics for us!  It will be interesting to see how they turn out! Love seeing how the different traits show.  I am getting some Maran & Wellsummer chicks 1st week of March for the dark eggs, there may be a roo in the bunch, we shall see.  One of my EEs already lays a fairly dark egg, I was surprised actually at how dark it is. Now get that camera snapping girl, we wanna see chicks! :-D  J
