Beautiful Bounty

fresh eggs looking like candy
Egg update:  The younger group of our chickens have been laying for a couple of months now.  I am amazed daily at the beautiful colors of the shells.  The Wellsummers' eggs which I expected to be a chocolate brown are more like a deep cinnamon color, I love it.  In about a week or so we plan to add some Maran chicks to our flock.  Our ladies really love the addition of the flax to their diet, as well as the handful here and there of the black sunflower seeds we bought for the goats.  Happy chickens indeed. 

We are definitely learning about the infinate ways to prepare an egg.  Frittata again for dinner tonight?
