Shutterbug: Just in Time for the Hunt!

Wow, the Easter bunny delivered just in time for my God son's visit!!! My hens had slowed down egg production in the last couple of weeks and I just attributed it to their cycle. It looked like there was going to be a shortage of eggs for Easter weekend. I had planned on having a big Easter egg hunt for my little God son (he just turned two). But the hens and Guineas were just not cooperating, or so I thought. Imagine our surprise when we moved some fence posts that had been leaning on a wooden rail. There was a hidden nest that had been receiving deposits for about a week.
Looks like Easter after all, and because some of my hens lay green, blue and pink eggs - no need to even dye them this year. Have a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, laughter, Easter eggs & lots of chocolate!

  2. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that. Hens make great pets and they also give something back (eggs, eggs, eggs). Nothing beats the taste of a fresh natural egg. If he could taste an egg or two against a store bought egg, he would most likely change his tune.
    I see your name says Missouri...you should visit Baker Creek Farm for their Spring festival (I think it's the first weekend of May). They have lots of vendors, maybe someone would be selling fresh eggs there.
    Good luck!
