Notice how the farm egg has a rich orange center while the store egg yolk is a medium yellow? Not only do farm egg yolks have a deeper color, but they are creamier and don’t break as easily as factory egg yolks. Another noticeable difference is that the shells of farm eggs are thicker and harder than those of factory eggs. These differences are due to diet, of course. Also, since my chickens spend their days outdoors, they get plenty of natural vitamin D. Factory chickens are given supplemental D in their feed pellets. Poor factory farmed chickens.

For average sized donkeys, 1/2 to 1 acre is sufficient space to roam. Miniature breeds may utilize less area, and larger draft breeds obviously more. Their large ears and lack of undercoat make them somewhat vulnerable in wet and cold conditions, so they need shelter in places where the weather is not in their favor. Their feet, however, are harder than horse hooves and don’t need to be shod as often. It’s worth noting that it can be a challenge to find a farrier that will work on donkeys, so make sure you have one in your area in case you need one.
