Chickens are starting to earn their keep…

October 11, 2009

We got a full dozen eggs last week and another three today. Lovely blue, sage green and pure white eggs. They are a beautiful sight on the kitchen table. I believe that either 3 or 4 out of the 5 hens are laying right now. Einstein of course, who is laying the smaller white eggs, Eunice, who is laying green eggs, and Honkers who I believe is laying the blue eggs. It's possible that Pecker is also laying and if so I think she is also contributing green eggs. Phyllis may be the last hold out. She is quite the individual. We didn't have to buy eggs at the grocery store today...how nice! I just bought a unique ceramic bowl this weekend at an antique store in Mineola to display the eggs. It's a lovely pale blue color. I'll shoot a photo of it with our lovely eggs next time.
