Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

First Triple Yolk Chicken Egg…

35 degrees - 8:56 am - blue sky and burrrr, baby it's cold outside...

Remember my post ‘Weekend Update’ where one of our chickens laid a HUGE egg?  Well this morning Jack wanted to make some brownies.  The recipe calls for two eggs, so I figured I would use that HUGE egg, guessing it was a double yolk.  Wow!  To my surprise I just cracked open the first triple yolk egg that I’ve ever seen in my entire life!  (I hope it doesn't make my brownies turn out funny.)

Yes, that's right - all three of those yolks came out of that one huge chicken egg!

We are new to raising chickens so I didn’t even know chickens laid triple yolk eggs!  What a great surprise!

{Update - Oct. 27}
Our double/triple yolk layer is one of the Welsummer girls - Hazel, Mabel, Nutmeg or Penny.  Now we just have to figure out which one...?
