It's not Easter - is it?

When we visited Don and Bonnie 2 weeks ago on their homestead, where they are making good progress on their new house- it seems like they have it enclosed overnight- Don was telling us that he was wishing that he would get a BLUE egg from their Aracuna chickens.  And voila, he was out gathering eggs and there it was!  They get green eggs pretty regularly; the pink and blue are more rare.  Of course, I love the really nice brown eggs too.
You can’t tell it as well from my photography with the tiny digital camera I had with me, but one of the eggs is pink.  Just think – Easter eggs without coloring them.  What I really, really like is getting these very fresh eggs to cook with – thick shells and nice, high yolks that are dark golden yellow, almost orange.  Of course, we had to show a picture of the ‘girls’ as well, along with the cock of the walk and the new chicks in their protective pen.

  1. Blue eggs! Who knew! Years ago we had many chickens and some great fresh eggs! Now we have to go to the store but I have to admit it's a lot less work!
    Happy Weekend!
