Five of our chickens are laying now, including one of the Ameraucanas, which lays the most beautiful blue eggs.
It’s hard to get the color right in photos, but I am going to try to match this color for the walls of the girls’ room.
When we bought six chickens, we were hedging our bets – at least one would be a rooster, right? And we couldn’t possibly keep six chickens alive our first year, right? Against all odds, we are getting five eggs a day, and there are only so many scrambled eggs my kids will eat (they begged me for cheerios this morning). Meatloaf, french toast, and egg salad sandwiches for dinner. There’s a good chance if you stop by my house, you will go home with a day or twos worth of eggs, or at least some cookie dough from the freezer. Just bring your own carton – we’ve been using the same one for 3 months!
