eggs!

our eggs with a white one for comparison


Bluebell looks on as her egg is stolen from beneath her. Just kidding she lays the green ones.
Ok so it's kinda hard to tell but the hens are laying brown eggs and sage green ones. I should take another close up photo but I ate the green ones for dinner so I'll have to take a picture of the new one tomorrow.

The time has finally come and those girls are earning their keep. We now get to enjoy the excitement of two fresh eggs daily. Sigh. We love our chickens!

Awww...I like Benson's haircut! I can't believe hens lay all sorts of different colors still! Man, it seriously just makes me want to have chickens all the more.
