We have six hens, auracana crossbreeds. They lay the most delightful pastel colored eggs. Not only that, but they are beginning to lay every day. We have had fresh eggs all winter for Hubby’s breakfast and other cooking, now we are getting a surplus!

 I love to see the blue, green and pink shells. It makes me wish for small children now that Easter is drawing near. I would be happy to boil some up for the traditional egg hunt.

One of our hens is trying to ‘find a nest”,  we have decided to let her set and try to raise some chicks this spring.
