Sweet!

It has been a long eggless season on Fleecenik Farm. We passed our old ladies on to a friend when we put our house on the market. But then we were offered year old Arucauna Birds and one little Rhode Island red hen. After weeks of patience and occasional ironic jokes about stew pots we finally have an EGG!

Sweet Spring!

Ahh! Isn't it grand?! All three of our Khaki Campbell ducks are laying. They lay an egg a day, each ;). And the chickens have started laying again, too. So, we're getting a half dozen eggs per day. So nice!

At our house, during the dry spell, I told the chickens that it was "eggs or legs, ladies".
