First of the season -


Our three "girls" are someplace between 8 & 10 years old, but someone once told me that if a chicken makes it past 2 or 3 years old, they will have a good long life - last year I even got a couple of dozen eggs to sell to the neighbor! Yeah Spring!

Sweet little Amercaucana egg! Go girls! Say, do you spin your wool and then knit with it or just sell it? I have a friend that just took her first spinning class and is totally hooked! I am just a fledgling knitter. Thanks for your blog.

Mine have kicked in too, Tina!

Lovely photo, Sis. And it gave me a great idea! I'm going to (try to) paint my Easter Eggs just that lite aqua color. No pink and purple and green...just aqua and shades of brown and creme. They will look like the "real thing"! Thanks for the inspiration!

Lucky you. I just found out yesterday that our neighbor had all her chickens stolen. Someone lifted their birds without leaving a feather behind. No fresh eggs for moi~

It seemed like someone flipped the switch on our hens last week also. Suddenly they're laying again! It's so funny how they go from nothing to so many eggs. I remember last year by the end of March we were getting a couple dozen eggs a day, so we're gearing up for lots of pound cake (uses 5 eggs), my creme brulee pie (uses 3 eggs), quiches (most use 3-4 eggs), egg salad, scrambled eggs, eggsetera :)
