Dotty lays her eggs straight into the carton.
They sit up nice and perky and don’t blow out all over the pan.
What am I talking about? I’m talking about the eggs Susan’s ISA Browns lay. They make the best poached eggs ever.
So today it is Gold medals all round for the chooks.
The award is for their fortitude, attitude and eggattude in spite of the heaviest snow falls in Crookwell for forty-five years.
Even in sub-zero freezing temperatures these brave little layers kept producing eggs and eggs that are the far superior than the supermarket variety. The ISA Browns are the producers of those big brown eggs that you will find in most egg cartons.
Their owner Susan says “laying an egg is like giving birth to a child and to do that every day in these freezing temperatures is hard work.”
Dotty takes her children for a walk.
These 2 kg chestnut-brown egg laying machines are extremely lovable, friendly, relaxed, and surprisingly intelligent. They get along with humans exceptionally well and are very affectionate.
If you are the one who provides food and treats they will let you pat and cuddle them. One drawback is that they don’t fetch sticks or chase balls but other than that they are as good as a dog.
On the plus side they can give you plenty of good food.
