No artwork today, but let me introduce you to our chickens.
She's is brave enough to eat from my hand.
And she lays the most beautiful little pinkish tan eggs.
She recently discovered the wood kindling box that had some leaves in it. She decided that was a good place to lay her pretty tan eggs with small speckles.
She's also a free-loader. I don't know if she's too young or too old to lay, if she's laying somewhere in the woods, if she's just lazy, or if she's a he... yikes!
She's very shy and usually at the back of the crowd.
I think she's also a free-loader. Although someone has started laying that hasn't previously. I'm not sure which one.
Sylvia looks like a hawk. She's gorgeous.
She has been the funniest to deal with. She has a mind of her own and and attitude!
Her eggs are beautiful and blue.
ME: Cheri, I think one of my hens is broody. She just wants to sit in the nesting box.
CHERI: She wants to be a mama. You should get her a couple of fertilized eggs and let her raise a chick or two.
... Hmmm...ME: Mary, do you know where I could get a couple of fertilized eggs?
MARY: I'll bring you six tomorrow.
RON: I like that you always have projects going on.
ME: Speaking of projects... I think I might get some eggs for Sylvia to sit on.
RON: You've already done it, haven't you.
She's been sitting on these for a week now. Two weeks to go! (The white ones are the fake eggs. I tried to take them out, but Sylvia wouldn't have it.)
