Wouldn’t you know it? Only a week after I took some outdoor photos of all the different, beautiful colored eggs that my flock lays, my only Black Copper Marans hen laid her first egg. I had wondered whether she would lay eggs as dark as the one she hatched from, and now, I know.
I sent a very reluctant Taterbug out to collect eggs this morning. That dark brown egg caused a remarkable transformation in the space of less than 30 seconds. I was afraid she would drop the egg in her excitement.
On a totally unrelated note, I got some very exciting news yesterday afternoon. I’m thankful that I did not have to do the judging. I’m also thankful for the sweater organizers, Lay&Go mat, ListPlanIt membership, and the Ikea gift card. I think that definitely calls for some chocolate!
