Healthy greens yield healthy eggs

So many fresh eggs...we've been feeding the hens fresh greens from the cold frame and green house (arugula going to seed, dandelion that's gotten away on us and is too bitter, outer lettuce leaves) which helps to produce bright yellow healthy yolks in their eggs.  In a few weeks it will be fresh nettles, then all the dandelion we can harvest (even the neighbours bring us bags of their dandelion "weeds"), then comfrey, then in summer the left over wilted greens and compost bits at the end of Saturday market day from our friends at Fertile Ground CSA...our hens are well supplied.  (A rainy day made for foggy photographs here).
