La Gallina contro il gatto

2 May

Why is there a chicken eating catfood in my kitchen with an onlooking cat in the distance?  The chickens are ruling our lives here.

Daily findings

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.
