Two times a month I barter two dozen eggs with another home school family in our support group. I was getting home made dinner rolls, hamburger buns and loaves of bread. But of course that had to stop with a gluten-free diet. Luckily her daughter eats gluten-free and she bakes loaves of bread from rice flour . She even grinds her own rice flour. I have to say that the bread looks pretty good. I asked her to include something else in the deal since the rest of the family was eating much bread at this point. I got home made blackberry jam. I have another friend that wishes to do some bartering this spring. On that note, Betty the easter egg layer, has decided to go broody today. If she continues, I will collect 5-6 eggs over the next two days to let her sit upon. I am not fighting the broodiness again this spring. Just let her sit have some babies and get over it. Plus I wouldn't mind some more hens for laying next year. If any roosters show up in the mix they will be butchered at 4months of age and go in the freezer.
