Three Different Colors!

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Do you see these eggs? Notice that they are three different colors! Do you know what that means? It means that Effie, who hasn't laid an egg since she started molting last September, is laying eggs again. I'm so stinking happy about this. I have no intentions of eating my chickens (they have names!), even when they stop laying. However, I was not happy about the fact that Effie may live another 6-7 years without producing anything for us. So stoked to see her pretty blue eggs again.

It also means that Flo is laying eggs in the coop again. I posted a few weeks back that we couldn't find her eggs. Last week I was in the coop and saw both Effie and Flo in their nesting boxes. Effie popped out, walked over to Flo and proceeded to peck the crap out of her until Flo flew the coop so to speak. I'm guessing this is why Flo started laying other places. She now waits until Effie is out of the way and busy in another part of the yard before she lays in the coop. Now we know who's on top of the pecking order. We've got eggs coming out of our ears again and it's definitely a good thing.

We've got lettuce coming out of our ears too and I have the cutest little helper who likes to pick it with me.

Your inspiring. I'd love some beautiful blue eggs in my fridge. :)

I need to find a farm to visit soon, we live on a military installation so we can't keep chicks or hens. However, I do love the sight of hens, chicks, cows, and Old McDonald. hehe.

So happy to hear about Effie and Flo. Best wishes.

Gorgeous! I'm so glad Effie is back to laying.

And I need to order some summer stuff for Pie. I'm debating at the moment. It's too hard to choose!

Thanks so much, sweet Blanca. It has really been a fun experience for us.

Sara, don't order anything yet. I have a ton of new summer stuff coming out in early June. And be sure to message me before you buy anything ;) Oh, and guess what I got today? Tickets to see Ray in September!!!!

I'm so jealous!! It's been too long since I saw beloved Ray. I need to see if he's coming anywhere near here. I haven't gotten any updates though....hmmm....
