Chicken in a Bread Pan

I've got eggs out the wazoo. Blue eggs. Green eggs. Brown eggs. You name it. I haven't made my Farm Fresh Eggs for Sale sign yet. Now what?


I know, I'll make Egg Bread for my chickens!!!
(Baking for them is sure to send Aunt Martha over the edge exclaiming "Girl, they're JUST chickens!")

Recipe:

10 eggs
1 cup corn meal
1 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup wheat germ

Mix ingredients well and add a little water if needed for a nice batter. Bake in a bread pan at 300 degrees for about an hour. Let it cool before serving to the chickens.


While it might gross certain 15 year old boys out that your feeding the chickens the eggs they just laid, it's actually good for them. In fact, for laying hens you can smash up the egg shell and throw those in as well. It helps make their egg shells harder.

Ok your title made me go look up the lyrics to a Charlie Daniels Song The Devil went to Georgia. Now I have the song in my head.

I found your blog this morning through The Country Doctor's Wife. I have enjoyed looking through it. We have chickens also and we homeschool our kiddos.

I love your coop and chicken yard. You have the Chicken Marriot!

It does seem a little odd...

I bet they love it, though!

I've never even heard of Brookville so I'm thinking we must not be in the same part of the state. ;(

Wasn't it about 12,000 eggs you needed to break even? I would say you have a good start on that. Nice to see those beauties are laying. And the bread does look good enough to eat.
