You've acquired a taste for farm fresh eggs, and yet those dozens at the farmers market (when you get there early enough to score a box) can be, well, a tad pricey for your recessionary budget. But if you've got a yard, one way to make your mortgage pay is to reap the fat of the land. In this case: yolk.

Sign up for a chicken rearing class: begin with the chick to get to the egg. Class:Starting With Baby Chicks.

Saturday, January 9, 1:30 p.m.-4 p.m.
Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, South Classroom,
4408 Delridge Way S.W. (Delridge neighborhood in West Seattle),
633-0451 x101, seattletilth.org.
$40. Call to sign up.

A second class runs Saturday, February 20, 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Good Shepherd Center, 4649 Sunnyside Ave. N.
