Daily findings

21 Mar

After many months of cold weather my chickens have finally decided there is enough daylight and warm weather to start laying on a regular basis again.   Our 7 euro white Livornese chicken actually produced eggs all winter (about every few days).  Our fancy 45 euro Marans and Araucana chickens, who are known to be a bit more fragile, just decided in the last week to start laying again.

In any case, I was happy to open the coop today and find these three beautiful eggs waiting for me.  Just in time to make some birthday cakes.  I love spring.

    Oh wow!
    How beautiful.
    We’re starting to seriously consider chickens.
    This post may have swayed me fully.
    Happy spring!
    Love from,

    I can’t believe how dark that egg is!
    My coworker started raising chickens last year, and it’s fun to hear about the progress, and the sadness when a fox or a hawk gets one. Last year my son’s class watched as eggs in the incubator eventually hatched, and my friend took them all and they grew so quickly!
    How long have you been raising chickens?
