We’ve got them! This is a week’s worth of hoarding for us. We had a big celebration for a little girl (she’s now four) and that meant brunch for lots of people on Sunday. Oh, and eight of these beauties went into the birthday cake.
Phyllis, she of the hawk attack, is obviously laying again: hers are the pretty greenish eggs. She’s an Ameraucana mix.
And oh, the poor things: today’s another day where I’m so happy I insisted on building the girls a large coop…it’s 9* out and they SO do not want to go outside into the ice and snow and howling winds. And again I am so glad I was too lazy to put a concrete floor in there for them! I dug up some of the bedding (there’s about a foot of the stuff in there) for them to scratch the ground inside their coop. It keeps them happy even though they’re quite literally cooped up today.
