SOCIETY DISPLAY CASE
SPRING CHICKENS

 

Spring chicken – a young chicken or a young person.
I may not be  a spring chicken, but I still have some spring left in my step.

Stay a spring chicken by staying active and involved in life.

Which came first the chicken or the egg?

The eggshell color doesn’t indicate the nutritional value or quality of an egg, but rather the breed of the chicken that laid it.  Hens with white feathers lay white eggs.  Hens with red/brown feathers tend to lay brown eggs.

Eggs contain 0 carbs, no sugar and are gluten free.

Eggs come with no list of ingredients – just egg.

Eggs contain the highest quality protein you can buy.

To tell if an egg is raw or hard – cooked spin it.  If the egg spins easily it is hard – cooked but if it wobbles it is raw.

Back in the day, many homes in Mont Alto had a chicken coop in the back yard.

Take a look at our spring chickens!
