Jan’s Farm Update

Although the days are still short and gray my ladies seem to know that spring is coming.  For the past couple of months or so I have been lucky to get the occasional egg or two every evening, but they have come out of their molt and are giving me a dozen eggs or more per day.  Many of my ladies are laying for the first time and it is always so exciting to find colorful eggs of all shades and sizes.  Ignore my lack or artistic ability, but enjoy all of the lovely shades of nature.

    Are some of the Araucanas? That is what we had in town because they are quiet.

      Hi Tony – Most of my ladies laying green eggs are Olive Eggers. I might have an Ameraucana or two as I purchased some local fertile eggs when I had broody hens. I am in an area where I don’t have to worry about my hens being noisy, but seriously after owning geese everything (except guinea’s or peacock’s) seem quiet 😄.

        Oh gads! Geese! Our neighbor below had two peacocks who were often arguing. They finally eliminated one of them. The remaining single peacock is not quite so bad. The peahens are strangely quiet.
