Chick Update and a Quest for Quiche


It’s been super busy here at Daisy Bee & the Moon Farm. A couple of weeks ago we added 24 new layer chicks to the flock. During this video I’ll be showing you our brooder set up and give you a sneak peak to the new additions.

Many of my friends have asked: what are you going to do with all those eggs? Well, I’m definitely experimenting with different egg based recipes, but a solid one is quiche. Not only can I use the eggs I’m not able to sell, but I can also clean out my fridge of any veggies hanging around. And the best part? I can knock out 10 quiche in a day and freeze them to save for those weeks I’m tired of my protein shake or for when we have visitors.

For my first attempt, I started with Quiche Loraine using pork from the pig we bought which was raised next door. Nothing really special about the recipe, I Googled for the recipe and found one by Betty Crocker and just ran with it. I now have my Mom’s recipe, so I’ll be playing with that down the road.

We had the quiche for breakfast the next day and it didn’t disappoint, but I plan to play with the recipe, including adding different ingredients.

What are other egg-centric recipes you prefer?

Our 60 meat birds arrived this weekend, so I’ll be providing another update hopefully in the next couple of days. Things sure will be busy here with potentially over 90 or so chickens

One thought on “Chick Update and a Quest for Quiche

  1. Last year when our 4 ducks were laying 4 eggs a day we tried pickling them Chinese-style (as the recipe calls for 10-20 eggs) and…well, I hated them…they didn’t go bad or anything, just a bum recipe, but that was our biggest “mega-egg” recipe. We’ve found that duck eggs don’t always stiffen up like chicken eggs do for souffles, which would have been my go-to, but I did make a French Toast bread pudding the other day which was pretty spesh.
