Bringing in the day's eggs just as it is starting to rain ... Most days this spring we've been getting an egg from each hen. Pretty remarkable considering their ages are so varied -- between 1 and 4.5 years. Anyhow it has been nice to have lots of eggs for meals and to share with everyone. I love the varied colours. Three "Easter Eggers" lay blue or green, the black copper maran has a rich brown egg, and the polish (Fancy Pants) lays a white egg. The pale blue in the middle is my favorite.
