Happy chickens enjoying great perks at Blackaby Hill Farm

2014-08-24 - Blackaby Hill Farm, Adair County, KY - Photo by Lisa Blackaby. Our laying hens are finally starting to fire back up again. "Earning their keep" is what I like to call it, - Lisa Blackaby of Blackaby Hill Farm writes. She now has lots of eggs from Happy Hens for sale at local Farmers Market on the Square and the Adair Farmer's Market, and no longer has to make excuse's when there no hen's eggs. Everyone had understood when here where no duck eggs; they were disappointed, but anyone who prizes a duck egg omelet also understands ducks - notional creatures who's minds are difficult to understand. But the hen eggs - it seemed to have been getting harder and harder to make excuses for the these usually reliable members of the workforce. Incidentally, at one of the Epicurean Kentuckian kitchens, most days we prefer Blackaby Hill hens eggs. - CM
