Backyard flock of laying hens are good for your health

Nutrition journal guidelines for egg consumption eggs make a healthy, affordable and tasty meal. Research has revealed just how many eggs is safe to eat in a week.

Grandma said “eat your breakfast biscuits with butter, jelly or jam, gravy, maybe a few slices of bacon or sausage patty’s as well in addition to your healthy 2 egg breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day.”

Good news for lovers of a frittata or scramble, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found there were no adverse effects from having as many as 12 over seven days.

They discovered that even participants with type-2 diabetes did not suffer adverse effects from eating a diet high in eggs such as inflammation, cardiometabolic risk levels or raised glucose levels.

Eggs particularly the yolk are high in fat, they are full of vitamins, minerals, protein and healthy omega-3 fats. The yolk is packed with nutrients, so there’s no need to opt for egg-whites only.
Eggs do not significantly raise cholesterol in the blood, the Mayo Clinic reports, and people who replace a grain-based breakfast with eggs have been found to eat fewer calories over the day.

  1. When I moved off a mountain into the valley, I had to get rid of my 22 chickens. I had to resort to buying eggs from the store and I have to say..YUCK! Once you have enjoyed eggs fresh from your hens, the stuff in the stores is disgusting! I was thrilled to hear that our little community is now zoned for up to 10 chickens in your yard. I need to get started on a coop as soon as possible. I just cant stand the store bought eggs

    • Good for you.
      If you avoid having a rooster that starts crowing at 3AM most people around you will never know that you have a flock of laying hens.

  2. It’s great to have the info – so many people have give up eating eggs from one health scare to the other!

    Just watching them scratch in the dirt us a guaranteed stress reducer!


  4. I find if I have an egg for breakfast it keeps me going much longer – no need to snack before lunch – than a grain-based meal.

  5. I wish the town I live in didn’t have an ordinance forbidding residents from keeping chickens. They claim it’s a health safety concern and a noise nuisance. Evidently they believe chickens make more noise than the guy who lives next door to me running loud power tools from dawn to dark…or the kid who lives a few doors down whose pickup is equipped with a bass-booster that’s so intense it rattles my windows. And I suppose they believe that chicken poop is more toxic than that of the countless stray cats and dogs that roam free in my neighborhood. I wish I could understand why the “powers that be” are so biased against laying hens.

    • Grin…. maybe it’s that rooster that starts crowing at 3AM. Band roosters and your hens are quite and happy to cluck, cluck from time to time.

  6. I used to love having our chickens. The eggs are so much tastier than those you buy in the store.

  7. I grew up on a farm and remember having chickens and lots of eggs. My mother who is now 92 still eats 2 eggs a day for breakfast and is as sharp as a tack….those omega-3’s are great for preventing dementia!
