Nobody Here But Us Chickens!

Love and eggs are best when they are fresh.

-Russian Proverb

About a month ago we were finally able to get our hands on a small flock of chickens. Five laying hens plus a gentleman rooster. We were told they were only about a year old and laid well all summer and into the fall. We set them up in an old hunting shed complete with nesting boxes and eagerly awaited the frittata fodder. Every day I would go out to the coop to freshen their food and water and strain to peek into the nesting boxes. Each day I was disappointed, until today! Cory and I found this beautiful green egg nestled in the hay.

Green Eggs and Ham Anyone?

 We think it belongs to the lady on the left. I’ve decided to call her Sophie. She’s pictured below with Edna.

  1. Sophie and Edna are quite elegant! Sad for the pigs but I wouldn’t turn down Green Eggs and Ham 😉
