It's World Egg Day!

Eggs are awesome. Highly nutritious, easy to store and prepare. You can eat all sorts of eggs: chicken eggs, duck eggs, quail eggs, and more. There are loads of ways to eat them: hard boiled, scrambled, poached, fried, and on and on. You can read more about eggs in last year's winter World Ark.

Many Heifer participant families raise chickens or ducks for their eggs. They're a great way for a family to  help meet their protein needs; and with a large enough flock, earning some income off the surplus is a real bonus.

Give the gift of chicks, ducks or geese, and empower families to provide for themselves.

Stay tuned throughout the day as we celebrate World Egg Day here on the Heifer Blog.
