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.

Our Eggs

10 Oct

Our sage green eggs from the Araucana chickens above.  Some days they are robin’s egg blue.  Other days a misty grey.  The bordeaux coloured eggs are from our Marans chickens. Oh, and that amazingly chubby in the photo is now 9 years old and as long and lanky as they come.

Daily findings from the coop.  A colourful heap of delicious fresh eggs.
