At Hoover’s, we’re all about eggs… So much so, that our entire business revolves around them! We hatch our own breeding flocks from eggs, which then give us the fertilized eggs to hatch baby chicks. This is a long process, and we are often planning nearly 10 months in advance what breeds we are going to have in our catalog for the next year. It takes about 21 days for eggs to hatch in the incubators. We then take the baby chicks to our breeding farms where they grow up and mature enough to lay a fertilized egg. This takes about 22 weeks depending on the breed. We care for our birds and collect the fertilized eggs twice a day. Once a week, we go to collect the fertilized eggs at our farms and bring them back to the hatchery. The eggs then go into the incubators for 18 days, and then are transferred to the hatchers where they sit for 3 days. After 21 days of incubation, the chicks finally hatch!
At Hoover’s, there’s only one thing we love more than eggs, and that’s food. Mary, our long-time owner makes sure that our candy jar and snacks are never in short supply. Being that its National Egg Month, and that we love food so much, we thought we would give you a little piece of Hoover’s in one of our favorite recipes. This recipe is simple, and if you accidentally add a little more or a little less, it’s no big deal -most of the ingredients are to your taste anyway. We thought this would make a great recipe to kick off National Egg Month, comment and let us know how you’ll be celebrating! Enjoy!
