the latest news from shanda’s henhouse
Most of you may know that I have chickens. These days, I have been busy raising our second flock (the first one was wiped out by raccoons) and eagarly awaiting the egg-laying stage. On December 12, I excitedly found the first four brown eggs. But now I want to let you know (in case you’re interested in such things) that my Ameraucanas are beginning to lay. On December 29, I almost stepped on the first green egg. It was right in the middle of the chicken coop floor, quite impossible to miss. Eggs are usually put in secret places, and so I wonder if Hen was flaunting this, her first lovely offering?
These pretty eggs are my favorite. For now, we are only gathering one a day so I try not to use them up too fast; in this way I always have several to look at in the midst of all the browns.
Happy Wednesday, friends!
